Over the Weekend, Festival lovers thronged Lunkulu Island to be part of The Bayimba International Festival Of The Arts. There was a huge lineup of acts, but for Arts and Culture Zealots, the SEED Fashion Show was a natural magnet.

Saturday was the biggest day in terms of a good lineup.

The first real action was the Seed showcase that happened on Saturday at 4:30pm. The Saturday Showcases were, according to the curator of Skilled Expressive Entrepreneurial Design Show, Ras Kasozi, based on the 2019 theme Recycle for beauty.

He explained to the audience that the SEED Show finalists were going to showcase outfits derived from components of the workshop they’d gone through the previous week.

“The designers are showcasing for the first time ever in their lives. In the past one week, we took them through inspiration sourcing workshops. And because our theme this year is ‘recycle for beauty’, we took them to Kibuuye Market, where they picked old clothes. They made clothes according to the few things they’ve learned,” designer Kasozi explained to the audience.

The Saturday SEED showcases then started. The SEED interns showcased in two groups.

The Models then hit the runway. Strutting the cat walk in recycled outfits. Among the many outfits that were made, the jeans recycled into jumpsuits with car tyres for the bust area, stood out.

The audience couldn’t help clapping at the different outfits. The designers explained the inspirations that informed the creative and practical processes of making the outfits.

The Sunday session, dubbed the Seed Alumni Runway Heat thrilled with the designers’ eclectic displays. The fashion designers showed through the models, how casual outfits can easily be turned into office wear and vice versa, among a panoply of other concepts. The crowd was enthused.

At exactly 2:00pm, the fire was lit again at the Seed Show fashion case. This time around, it was because of the now established fashion designers, Joan Nakigude, Charles Ssemanda, Anne Ayebare, and Mushra Abdalla who are all previous Seed show winners were showcasing.
