The 3rd Italy-Uganda Fashion show-contest, (R)Evolution Fashion Show, will take place on the 22nd of March, 2019, at Sheraton Kampala Hotel (Rwenzori ballroom).
The event is organized by the Embassy of Italy and CAIU (Cultural Association of Italians in Uganda).
We have received dozens of applications from young Ugandan designers. An independent jury has selected the best 20, who will produce three outfits each to showcase during the fashion show.
Professional models and an Italian Olympic gold-medalist will walk the cat-walk.
The jury will select the best designer, who will fly to Rome (Italy) for a 3-week internship in the fashion studio Lady Bee (which is also participating in the fashion show with its outfits).
We expect around 300 paying participants. As in previous editions, all proceeds of the event will be devolved to a charity. This year we have chosen WAWI (Women at Work International), for which Stella Atal (one of the most renowned Ugandan fashion designers, and a member of our jury) is goodwill ambassador. The proceeds will help WAWI’s “End Fistula” project. For more info please visit: http://wawi.or.ug/.
Our M.C.s will be Bettinah Tianah from NTV and MALAIKA.
