Legendary fashion designer, Stella Atal together with model and fashion enthusiast Judith Heard, represented Uganda at this year’s ‘Africa Fashion Reception’ held in Paris that happened yesterday, the 7th of November.
Normally, a designer is nominated to represent each African country, and Stella Atal held the flag for Uganda this year, accompanied by Judith Heard.
The Africa Fashion Reception is a Pan African initiative, organized by legendary Gold limited in collaboration with the African Union and UNESCO which invites African designers from all over the African continent and the Diaspora to showcase their skill and talent in fashion.
“We love our country and we represented Uganda to the fullest,” said a very proud Judith Heard.
Stella Atal too could not hide her excitement and immediately talked about their pride in representing Uganda and coming up with ideas to develop the Ugandan fashion industry.
“Yes, we are still representing our country Uganda. We talked about the development of fashion, art and culture in Uganda,” said Atal.
This year’s event gathered fashion icons, dignitaries, Ambassadors and media from over 30 African countries, in a celebration of cultural diversity expressed through the artistic fashion discipline with the proud theme ‘Africa is the New Inspiration of Global Fashion’.
