TINER International School of Beauty held its tenth graduation ceremony last week. One-hundred and fifty students were awarded certificates and diplomas in fashion designing, beauty therapy and hairdressing.

“I congratulate all of you for having graduated with practical skills that will make you job creators rather than job seekers,” said Heinen Helmut, the guest of honour and Team Leader of the Investment Programme of the Ministry of Education and Sports.

The 9:30am to 2:00pm ceremony included a variety show by graduands who showcased their gomesi, bark cloth, bridal wear, evening wear, casual wear and children’s wear designs.

A light green satin wedding dress and a white and blue gomesi were the show stoppers. Former Miss Tourism contestant Anilah Alibhai was among the graduands and she showcased a black and silver evening dress.

The hairdressers also showed off dramatic hairstyles. Some had their hair plaited with palm leaves and baskets, while a lecturer, Latif Madoi, paraded models in mats and bark cloth and outfits in colours of the Uganda flag.
Children also excited the parents at the ceremony.

Tiner School is one of the most prominent fashion and design institutions in the country. It was established in 1995 by Ruth T Kibirige, a local designer and Moses Kibirige of dfcu group. Since then, the institution has trained more than 2,500 beauty therapists, hairdressers and fashion designers.

Most of the students go on to set up their own salons, fashion houses or beauty parlours, while others pursue greener pastures abroad. The school is jointly funded by KFW, a German organisation working with the Ministry of Education and Sports.
