Showcasing her Metropical Deluxe Collection, Venessa was inspired by her love of Uganda thus working with the wealth of colour within the African prints. The unconventional mix of patterns together with sequins created a distinct look with different colours and textures.
The collection was showcased at the 1st Ugandan UK convention on the 27th August 2011 at Londons swanky Troxy celebrated with Speaker of the Ugandan Parliament Hon. Rebbecca Kadagga in the audience amongst others.
Her green -Eve- dress was the center piece of this collection (Pictures of the Metropical Deluxe Collection). It perfectly captured what the whole collection was about and was named after one of Vanessa Mukasas biggest inspirations. Her grandmother who is here in Uganda.
The effect of mixing traditional African fabrics and shimmery metallic sequins gave the collection a luxurious fresh and funky feel. Vanessas love of bling! bright colours! and prints! that she uses as her signature is a staple on the Metropical Deluxe Collection.
Vanessa holds a fashion degree and has interned for Vivienne Westwood and Lulu Guinness among others on the fashion scene and now intends to take her love of fashion to the next level.
