Miss Uganda Queens Dominate Herrera Show At NY Fashion Week
New York Fashion Week is back, baby, and so is the winter street style that comes along with it. For the first time in two years, the NYFW fall-winter 2022 season has descended upon Manhattan in all its chaos and glory. This year’s return to in-person shows in the middle of February although painful at times for the editors, buyers, and influencers attending gives everyone else a much-needed boost of style inspiration.
The New York Fashion Week is a semi – annual event held every February and September. It is a series of events where international fashion collections are shown to buyers, the press and the general public. And It is one of the 4 major fashion weeks in the world, collectively known as the “big 4” – New York, Paris, London and Milan.
Now the latest we also is that the Former Miss World Uganda Quinn Abenakyo has been in New York a months, but she featured prominently at this year’s New York Fashion Week together with Elizabeth Bagaya, the reigning Miss Uganda.
The Miss Uganda Organization is celebrating 10 years under Kezzi Entertainment, with Brenda Nanyonjo at the helm.
Through a variety of contacts and networks, the Miss Uganda Chief Executive, Brenda Nanyonjo and the team, have been able, since 2018, to send several Queens to grace the NYFW catwalk.
NYFW has a consortium of designers, and the Miss Uganda Queens walk for upcoming designers and show producers.
Nanyonjo sends photos and look books of the Queen’s to the Fashion Show producers to vie for spots on the catwalk.
From 2018 Quinn Abenakyo – Miss Uganda 2018, Lynette Kwagala – Miss Uganda Central – 2018, Oliver Nakakande – Miss Uganda 2019, Mary Nakalema – Miss Uganda 2018 Finalist and Elizabeth Bagaya – Miss Uganda 2022.
