Popular singer, songwriter and producer Bianca Atterberry alias Blush wore a Kenyan-made red fish leather wristlet made by Nthenya Mwendwa to the Grammy’s red carpet. Atterberry has worked with Demi Lovato, K. Michelle, Mary J. Blige, Macy Gray, and Meghan Trainor, among others.

Nthenya says that it came to her as a surprise and only learned that her $300 bag would be used at the US-based awards when Bianca tagged her on Instagram.

Prior to the feature on the Grammys red carpet, the designer had also participated in the PreEmmys gifting suite, pre-Oscars Gifting suite, and Cannes Film Festival gifting suite. All these contributed to the Grammy’s red carpet feature.
