Last week ,social media more so twitter, was terrorized by the stories of a young fashion star, Oscar Kampala with his dapper collection of suits he dropped on the scene which trended for four days nonstop. Oscar Kampala is a young ambitious student of Makerere University who has passion in fashion and style in gents wear mainly tailored suits.
His presence in the fashion industry has totally changed the image of the fashion industry in Uganda. One now cannot talk about gents fashion in Uganda without mentioning Oscar Kampala on the top list. Oscar makes all sorts of worldly-known suits like Nigerian wears and Ghanaian wears that have been commonly tagged “urban wear” in Uganda.
Many artists such as Starboy Terri, Offei have come up to make use of him the latest being Eddy Kenzo in his Made in Africa album, a reason he top trended social media for the whole of last week taking up even the weekend.
In a few years time, with Oscar in the fashion industry of Uganda, the fashion industry will have a complete different image. With a young lad in his early twenties who has been supported greatly by Makerere students.
