The Miss Uganda- Canada Initiative has announced a partnership with Paris based Ugandan fashion designer Atal Stella.
According to Bettina Tumuhaise, the Brand & Marketing Manager for the Miss Uganda- Canada Initiative, Atal will be doing more than just designing attires for the contestants next year.
“Atal will be flying into Toronto next year, and will run workshops to mentor the contestants on a number of issues,” Bettina revealed. “She will also help prepare them on how to maneuver the industry as a beauty queen as well as the pressures of working with other industry professionals.”
“She will also be on our panel of judges for the grand finale,” Bettina added.
Atal is a renowned Ugandan fashion designer and professional artist who has been on the fashion scene since 2007. Atal’s wearable art collections have been showcased on both Ugandan and international runways in countries like Spain, Norway, UK, Cameroon, Denmark, Germany, USA, Netherlands, Togo, France, Switzerland, and Equatorial Guinea, among others.
Atal, who was the official designer for the Miss Uganda beauty pageant in 2009 and later on Miss Africa USA in Washington D.C in 2010, brings the much needed Ugandan touch to the first ever Miss Uganda- Canada.
The inaugural Miss Uganda – Canada beauty pageant will take place in June 2021 in Canada.
