It’s October and we’re on Day 36 of Diana Opoti‘s 2015 edition of #100DaysOfAfricanFashion. Most of us, well at least I’ll speak for myself, absolutely cannot afford to wear only Ugandan, let alone African brands, for…3 months! Y’all know what the Sylvia Owori, Kwesh and Gloria Wavamunno prices are like, and you also probably agree that even getting your go-to tailor to make you pieces for 30 days is a stretch in the pocket. But hey, a girl can admire from a distance and have hopes for y’know one day in the future!
Anyway, Diana Opoti is a big brand name in the fashion PR business in Kenya, and I’m sure with her new projects, she’s capturing the African spotlight too. She started the #100DaysOfAfricanFashion in 2014, and it was such a HUGE success that she just had to bless us with it again. It’s also a lot more organised this year: she has a glam team, a team that coordinates with designers and helps her choose her outfits, even a social media team! And well, of course the audience like me (and hopefully you, too), that’s been devotedly checking out her instagram and website everyday for new outfit posts, because YES, LORD!
Just as a heads-up, she’s already featured designers from all over Africa, Uganda inclusive! So, since I’m obsessed with Ugandan fashion houses and stylist collections like bold, here’s a rundown of which ones have featured so far. (PS: Her first week featured Ugandan designs. WOOP, WOOP!)
