Ngyenzi Mugyenyi, one of the three ladies behind Bold said that since Bold is about supporting and promoting local talent, there was a need to reach out to a big pool of talent, which they could not do in their old shop at Krsna Mart mall.
She said that they will keep going upwards and forward in promoting Africa talent, with the hope that Ugandans will continue to support this talent at all levels as they have from the start.
Eye catching were the creations in the shop especially the accessories because they were well displayed, specious and very unique.
