Ugandan Fashion Council

Kampala, Uganda

Using local non-professional talent and low cost tools developed marketing collateral

Soolkaama was approached by the Ugandan Fashion Council to develop a project using local talent in order to produce content for the promotion of their upcoming Kampala Fashion Week (2017) in Uganda.

We created a team comprising of local designers, modelling talents who were sought asylum in Uganda but originally hailed from DRC and South Sudan and a support crew of budding Ugandan photographers. Soolkaama shared behind the scenes, lessons of planning and executing a fashion shoot, and working with constraints of minimal gear. The shoot utilised locally available resources to create interesting lighting, sets and make-up options.
