There will be two different events,starting with the French fashion day at the French residence in March 19 and the (R)evolution fashion show and contest on the 22nd of March at the Sheraton Kampala Hotel.
With an aim of sparking Ugandan’s interest for French fashion and vice-versa,the French fashion day will be an opportunity to showcase the know-how of talented Ugandan designers.
Through auctioning of the outfits of selected Ugandan designers,funds will be raised for a charitable cause.
Whereas the (R)evolution fashion show and contest’s main goal is to promote new talents.
The show will offer platform to 20 young talents to present their creations.
