The Olympics team named Uganda among the top 10 nations with outstanding outfits at the opening ceremony of the Tokyo Olympics.
Uganda’s Beauty Pageant specialist and Miss International Uganda, Monica Akech, could not hide her excitement.
‘’I loved the Ugandan outfits. Male outfits were spectacular and very creative. I suspect that the designer is male and probably dresses in the same manner or specializes in menswear because he paid more attention to the male outfits,’’ she said.
She explained how the balance of colors appeared impeccable and camera-friendly, with the scarf adding that extra x-factor.
Akech believes the designer could have done more for the women’s outfit because it was so familiar to her.
She said it is like she had seen it over and over again before and that they didn’t put much thought into it. However, she said it actually harmonized with the ale outfit.
She wished the female dresses were a bit shorter than how they were but said these are athletes, not models. Therefore she said it is understandable.
‘’The female outfit concept had impressions of the traditional gomesi merged in a modern outfit. Great idea, though the fitting was just not proper, but the designer tried to give his or her best,’’ Akech said.
Akech further mused about the traditional kikoi almost becoming the national fabric.
