Kigali Fashion week is here baiby… It is no rumor, for the first time ever, Kigali is going to experience a Fashion week. There has been 100 Fashion shows before and of course Dady de Maximo’s Fashion Festival but never Fashion week, at least not dubbed that:). And as y’all maybe guessing right now, I CAN NOT WAIT!
Organized by House of Fashion Rwanda, Kigali Fashion week will explore the intersection of Fashion dressing by bringing together Fashion communities from all over the world. To shape the existing image of Fashion, this event is a pathway for the establishment of “The School of Arts” in Rwanda that will promote Rwandan designers, help talented young people to have access to education, become self entrepreneurs in the Fashion business and expose African designs on the international market.
This three day event is scheduled for 5th-7th December 2012. Designers set to showcase among others; Line Hvass from Denmark, the renown Ivorian Pathe’O, Gloria Wavamunno from Uganda, local designers; Ituze Colombe, Francis Iraguha, Patrick Muhire, Naleli Rugenge and many more.
I gotta say I’ve got too much anticipation for this event since it’s the first and I’m hoping to God, they come through. I’m excited and can’t wait to see every piece and everyone but most especially I can’t wait to see Gloria Wavamunno’s work, I’ve been a big fan, I’ve seen her at New York Fashion week and Arise Magazine Fashion week and damn she’s goooood!
