in fashion, featured designer

Solome Katongole is a label that specializes in ready to wear and customized women’s clothing. Solome Katongole is the designer behind the label; despite the fact that she has a bachelors of science in biology, she has always been aware of fashion from a young age and as she grew older her passion for fashion design grew as well. Her Ugandan culture has helped to influence her creativity in making garments. In early 2008 she went to London and interned with Yemi Osunkoya the great designer behind the Kosibah Label. Upon her return in June 2008 she moved to LA to purse her dream of becoming a professional designer. She attended majoring in Fashion Design and now a graduate of Fashion Institute of Design and Merchandising. She has honed her skills by designing for and participating in several shows; to name a few her work has graced the runways of Africa Fashion Week New York 2010, Boston Fashion Week 2010 “Fashion Expose”, Mercedes Benz of Buffalo Fashion Week 2011, and Hub of Africa Fashion Week 2012.

While I don’t hardly consider myself a fashionista, that top outfit is extra cute.
