Kampala Fashion Week highlights over 10 local designers
Dec '14
Some 10 home-grown menswear and womenswear designers showcased their exquisite apparel collections at the just held inaugural edition of Kampala Fashion Week in Uganda.

Ras Kasozi, the designer behind Kas Wear brand, presented a military-inspired range accented with black lace, fringes and pointed-shoulder detailing.

Natasha Karugire, the Ugandan designer and daughter of the country’s Former President Yoweri Museveni, presented her line named J&Kainembabazi. Made using chiffon and silk, the collection featured a yellow animal print adorned dress and an array of vibrantly coloured dresses with beaded necklines.

The British men’s designer Ozwald Boateng trained Gloria Wavamuno drew inspiration from people’s perception of her character and style for her new presentation. Accentuated with draping details, the white, black, red, yellow and blue coloured ensembles were decorated with bold African and floral prints. Crafted from leather, sheer and jersey fabrics, the featured pieces were asymmetrical skirts, blouses, jackets, raincoats and dresses.

The UK-based ethical fashion designer Jose Hendo showed a 30-piece collection. Made using tree bark derived cloth mixed with cotton, silk and denim, the line included jackets, trousers, coats, ruffled dresses and headpieces.

In addition to the aforementioned names, designer labels like Martha Jabo, Eguana, and Catherine and Sons also displayed their exclusive pieces at the Ugandan event. (PB)
