Alecool, a UK based Ugandan designer served fashion dripping sauce and flavor during his showcase at the recently concluded Abryanz Style and Fashion Awards. Notable about his show case was the fact that he had Ugandan celebrities that are considered fashionable gracing his creation demonstration.
Some of the celebrities that walked the runway include Ykee Benda, Bettinah Tianah, Sheilah Gashumba, Judith Heard and the proprietor of ASFAs himself Brian Ahumuza.
During his showcase, the long time music star and diva, Grace Nakimera performed her hit song ‘kawonawo’. This gave the showcase a huge boost in regards to its African choreography matching ‘Post modernism meets Africanism’ .
Alecool must be remembered from his jaw dropping Air space showcase last year. We must admit, we were not ready for it. His creations always communicate an urban street style; this explains the kind of energy and free style infused in his showcases.
