THOUGH that looking for greener pastures only meant going to London for kyeyo (odd jobs)? Hmm, think again. Fashion designers from Lebanon now look no further than Kampala for greener pastures.
At first, it was Jalal Al Achkar, who set up a shop with designer suits. His La Vie Boutique at Grand Imperial Hotel, became a big hit in town.
Now, his little sister Mimi is in town to have a piece of the pie.
The sassy chic has pitched camp at Vialli, Jalalâ€™s new shop on Garden City, where she sells designer suits and jewellery from Italy. The boutique is next to Sylvia Oworiâ€™s.
Meanwhile, we hear another of Jalalâ€™s brothers is soon hitting town to join the same business. Before we know it, we may have a Jalal fashion empire.
Jalal destined to settle in Uganda?
