Fashion comes to Blankets and Wine Kampala


The 17th edition of Blankets and Wine took place yesterday at Lugogo Cricket Oval. The rain had threatened to spoil the event but fun won at the end. It was lit! Most exciting for me was the fashion pop up corner. This is the first edition that has had the Blankets and Wine Fashion section. Represented was Eguana, Kona, African Swaggy, Salooni and Grafiti Wear. To the designers I chatted with, this was a great opportunity to make contacts.  It was a smart idea for B&W Kampala to introduce a fashion section like their Kenyan counterparts. This will help in promoting these brands because the B&W audience is a target market for the designers.  Join me in officially welcoming fashion to B&W Kampala. Here are a few random shots from the event by yours truly.
