A hats affair at Blankets and Wine


The ninth edition of Blankets and Wine Kampala took place last Sunday. The food and drinks were flowing from the beginning to the end. Eric Wainaina, Suzan Kerunen, Janzi Band the dynamic duo Radio and Weasal lit up the stage. As is the norm Kampala the ladies and gentlemen put their best feet forward. Fashion statements were made. What stood out for me were the hats. From Fedoras to cloches, panamas, fascinators, cowboy hats, caps and wide brim hats were all represented in different colors and textures. Even hat makers – Simon and Mary from South Africa had a stall at the event. They were obviously overwhelmed by how people stormed their stall for a hat or two. Simon and Mary will be officially launching in Kampala very soon. Ladies and gentlemen, I present the hats side of Blankets and Wine or is it Hats and Wine! Enjoy. Share. Leave a comment.
