Uganda: British Council Trains Fashion Entrepreneurs

Twenty-five budding fashion entrepreneurs were passed out last Thursday following intense training under British Council Uganda.

This was part of the East Africa Arts Creative Enterprise Training programme that saw fashion designers from Kenya, Uganda, Ethiopia, Rwanda, Sudan and Tanzania undergo training.

They explored a wide range of innovative business ideas, connected and learnt from the industry experts in order to grow their individual brands. This was the second cohort.

East Africa Arts promotes new art, shares skills and ignites partnerships between the UK and East Africa (Uganda, Kenya, Rwanda, Ethiopia, Sudan and South Sudan) through programmes such as New Art New Audiences, skills and networking events and In Motion, a mobility programme that offers three different grants for artists and cultural practitioners to travel and participate in events and activities in East Africa and the UK.

The three-day workshop that culminated into the colourful event on Thursday had mentors including Anita Beryl of Beryl Qouture, Ras Kasozi of Kas Wear and SEED Show, among others.

Its main focus was to help creative young entrepreneurs to craft their fashion business blueprint and to get their businesses into the future.

Charles Semanda, winner of SEED Show 2016, described the workshop as an eye-opener and that the knowledge will have a lasting impact on his label - Say-manda - as he positions himself to export to the UK.

The event held at Resilient Africa Network in Kololo also had In Place of War as co-organisers. In Place of War also runs a creative and social entrepreneurship programme.
