Latif Madoi aka Jet Speed Designer, known for creating ready-to-wear outfits in a matter of minutes, has been invited to Sweden to represent Ugandan fashion designers at the Valentine’s in a Cultural Way event on February 25, 2023.
In its fourth edition, the event has been organised by Blessed Franchesca aka Quin Pro, an events organiser based in Sweden.
Valentine’s in a Cultural Way is an annual event that brings together Ugandans living in Sweden, Swedish people, and well-wishers in the neighbouring Scandinavian countries to promote unity, share business ideas and promote fashion, as well preserve culture in the diaspora.
Madoi, the proprietor of Latif Designz, has been performing on big international stages and winning several awards, inspiring other Ugandan fashion designers. These were some of the reasons why he was selected to represent Uganda in Sweden as a guest designer, a motivational speaker and a role model to many fashionistas.
Madoi will also train other fashion designers who are going to showcase their works on the runway.
Afterwards, Madoi will head to the Uganda convention in Canada in July.
