THE Kanga can be transformed from ordinary to extraordinary. It is time to take out your party shoes and dress for the occasion this festive season in Kanga-inspired fashion. 

Arapapa recently showcased four designs in this category at Nakumatt Oasis Mall. Singer Judith Babirye and socialite Judith Heard strutted down the catwalk showing off how to wear the Kanga. 

Heard’s short dress looked sassy with a bow detail on one arm, while Babirye wore a long one-arm evening dress in eye-catching red with Kanga detail on the waist and sleeve. 

For the men, there was a tunic-like maroon shirt with Kanga detail teamed with fitting black trousers.

Although the show fashion was presented to only a handful of people, they appreciated the Afro-fusion styles, some of which were showcased last year at a private function graced by the Editor of Vogue Italia, Franca Sozzani.

These Afro-fusion styles, mainly in black, white and red, were outstanding too because of the blend of colours. 

The mini-dress and the black and white dress that fit like a glove meet different style needs. Santa Anzo of Arapapa promised to showcase Afro-fusion style and she did.

The fashion show, which started after 9:00pm, was punctuated with acapella music by The Cathedrals, an all-men singing group. 

They spiced up the evening with their rhythmic foot stamping, finger snapping and humming, while their sonorous voices blended in harmony, creating beautiful soothing music. 

However, the fashion show ended abruptly and the audience was left asking for more.
