OG Apparel- UPCOMING FASHION DESIGNER OF THE YEAR.
Omara Kenny Nyeko the CEO and founder and Head fashion designer at OG Apparel was born in Nsambya. He went to Greenhill Academy, Kabojja International School, Vienna College Namugongo and the Emirates aviation college, Dubai.
He started out dealing in second hand clothes early 2013 but only to realize his clients weren’t getting exactly what they wanted. In order to satisfy his clients’ needs, he decided to engage into designing and learning the whole process of making clothes. This was the birth place of his fashion designing career as he had now figured out the best way of satisfying my clients. He started out working and learning from home but later on moved to kiyembe lane downtown where he has since then shared a workshop with some of the most experienced tailors in the clothing industry here in Uganda. This has helped him earn a lot of experience and also improve on my designing skills.
OG Apparel started out as a men’s only clothing line providing quality fitted suits for the average youth. It has since then grown into a full clothing line where we now cater for both women and children clients as well.
As an aerospace engineering student in my university years, Omara always wanted to be practical in his career. He adds that being a fashion designer has been the best decision he ever took towards improving my life and well-being. Omara adds that he has managed to discover what I’m capable of. He thankful to God and to family that’ve seen him and supported him throughout this journey..
