A fashion event like Hellen Lukoma’s Genesis 4 fashion show is always left to be appreciated-if not clawed at, by mainly fashion critics. However, after closely interviewing some of the designers and fans in attendance at the event hosted at Cayenne Bar and Restaurant Bukoto last night, we realized that not only the critics have the satisfactory appreciation of this art. Most were full of admiration for Lukoma, and hope for Genesis.
Nina Mirembe, the brain and hands behind Gypsy Collection, the most flashy showing of the night thanked Lukoma for giving her the platform to express her personality.
“Bold is my personality. I did my work according to how I wanted it and felt about it and I’m glad I could freely showcase that here” she said.
Another designer, Linda Butera Mulira had an important message to pass on to the public about Lukoma.
“Helen showcases raw and new talent at absolutely NO FEE! Mark that. It is totally free to be part of the designers showcasing. I’m so blown away that I would want to be part of this forever” Linda said ecstatically.
As for Miriam Muzianengye of Momo Designs, Genesis is proof that fashion in Uganda keeps growing and it is a proud venture to be a part of.
“I love every piece showcased. It is my second time here and I can comfortably say this time is bigger and better than the first, which too was good on its own” the Rwandese beauty commented.
It did not stop there. Host Malaika Nyanzi said she was in awe of Helen Lukoma and Sweet Lips wine for giving her the platform to host such an influential fashion event.
“This is a selfish and very serious fashion concept. I see its growth, and I totally love it. It is my first time hosting so I thank Helen and Sweet Lips wine for making this happen” a smartly clad Malaika concluded.
One of the guests who preferred not to be revealed said she loves Lukoma’s Genesis fashion shows because there is always boldness behind the creativity and something new to the table everytime. With these kinds of endorsements, the sky can be the only limit for Hellen as she gets a firmer grasp on the fashion industry, and continues to take it by storm.
