Paple Rayn marks 2 years in style

0

Online apparel store Paple Rayn celebrated 2 years of existence with food, drink, fashion and the biggest highlight, the launch of a Mobile Application. All the action took place on Saturday night at Madvhani house, Lugogo. The lights cameras and action packed event kicked off a little later than expected with a cocktail before the real reason for the event took place. The female models showcasing outfits from Le Placard first graced the runway that ran through the audience giving us an up-close view of the outfits. Le Placard is women’s accessories and clothing boutique that partnered with a Paple Rayn for the night. The collection was all about colour with matching handbags and heels. What stood out was the black and gold assemble worn by model, Sophie Melody. It should be noted that the heels showcased by the models were not ordinary but rather butterfly heels. Maybe Le Placard can take the lead in popularizing the shoes with butterfly detail at the back on the local fashion scene. After the first showcase, dinner was served and it was time to enjoy the food as guests recapped the previous showcase and looked forward to the next one.

Then the male models came strutting down the runway donning Paple Rayn Hub’s latest collection of men’s blazers. The collection officially launched the label which will be an additional to the website available for the clientele. The blazers came in crimson, wine red, maroon and some interesting patterns like checkered and one finished with an animal print lapel. To cap the event, a mobile app was launched to make shopping a click away and its currently available for only Android users.

Urban TV’s Denzel Mwiyeretsi was the night’s host while the top ten in this year’s Coca Cola Rated Next entertained the guests. Rapper Benezeri known for his single, Zuukuka also chipped in with a live performance flowing only against the background of the acoustic guitar.

Paple Rayn is a brainchild of Suesanne Tusiime. We interviewed her recently. See http://wp.me/p6fSq6-bZ for the full article. Her future plans include making a definite mark on the fashion industry both in Uganda and internationally. “I would like to begin shipping outside East Africa. We have so many requests to ship all over the world but certain hindrances make it expensive to ship from Uganda to European markets,” she said in the interview. With the App and fashion label, looks like the Paple Rayn is definitely coming your way.
