WHEN you meet her, she does not strike you as someone who runs a whole fashion house by herself, in a foreign land at that. But this South Africa-based Ugandan, a petite mother of three, has at just 26 years earned herself a fortune through her fashion sales in the name of Star Qt.

WHEN you meet her, she does not strike you as someone who runs a whole fashion house by herself, in a foreign land at that. But this South Africa-based Ugandan, a petite mother of three, has at just 26 years earned herself a fortune through her fashion sales in the name of Star Qt.

Now here she brings, behold, Miss Uganda, the South African version. Slated to take place on June 23 at Pretoria City Hall, South Africa, it will be the first of its kind in the country where she has lived for 10 years now.

“Since we have lots of Ugandans living in South Africa, I decided to come up with this pageant, first as a way of promoting Ugandans’ interaction on a common cause, and second to showcase Ugandan beauty and talent since contestants will have to showcase some skills,” says the Star Qt fashion house boss.

Also in a quest to make Ugandan talent recognised, Nankya plans to have Ugandans among the entertainers at the event.
Under the umbrella of Star Qt, Nankya will herself design every cloth that the models and artistes will need to make the day a success.

Nankya, who had a well-attended fashion show at Steak Out in Kampala last October is now on her feet running a tight ship for the red carpet event to go down as planned.

The contestants, who must be Ugandans living in South Africa aged between 17 and 35, will among other things on the runway showcase the 2012 Star Qt winter collection to own the title of Miss Uganda and win a prize car.

The winner of the Mr. Qt Pageant will sign a contract as face of Star Qt as well as appear on the Star Qt magazine cover, which magazine will also being launched on the same day.

What a way to represent your motherland abroad!
