African prints, stitched together in tie & die, flora, drafts, patterns and urban wear made out of jersey, and other fabrics is what was presented at the grand opening of the new Bold shop at Acacia Mall, in Kampala over the weekend.

The shop that is about 100sqms of space is expected to house about twenty two brands, but by press time, only fifteen brands were counted.

Among the many designers whose works were presented in the shop was Gloria wavamuno, kwesh fashion house, Eguana, Martha Jabo, Qmark, Zanaa, Husi, Definition Africa, Claire Tendo fashion house, Qulture, Solome Katongole, Catherine & sons, kunda, Kona and Namia Couture.

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.
