Miss Uganda this year was the definition of a Glitz and Glamour event. The guests and the contestants brought out their A fashion game for the beauty pageant. To make it even more special, this year’s Miss Uganda was graced with the presence of Miss World 2018; Vanessa Ponce De Leon. Miss world was in the country for 6 days touring the different regions and sealed off her visit with officiating the Miss Uganda event.
Miss world’s gown for the Miss Uganda grand finale was styled by Ugandan celebrity stylist; Christine Akello also known as Tinah Brad.
The champagne coloured dress was inspired by the gomesi which is a traditional attire for many traditions in Uganda. It was a blend of modernity and the tradition of the people in Uganda.
The gown had notifiable sleeves that were short and puffed just like the traditional ‘gomesi’. Tinah brad added an off shoulder element to give it the modernity feel. It also had an inner garment just like the ‘gomesi’ has a ‘kikooyo’ and to wrap it all up was a belt to represent the sash that is used on the ‘gomesi’. Tinah Brad said that she wanted the Miss world to grace the event in an attire that is not only elegant and fashionable but also has a touch of tradition.
Aside from Miss World’s gown, Tinah Brad also dressed all the contestants in all the beautiful gowns that they wore at the finale.
The sky is the limit for Tina and we will probably see her style many big celebrities not only in Uganda but also abroad. Get yourself a pulse bundle by dialing *157# and follow Tinah Brad and Tinah Brad store both Instagram and Facebook respectively and see more of her work.
