Ugandan fast rising top model, Aketch Joy Winnie, signed to Joram Model Management and now placed with Fusion Model Management Capetown, M4Models in Germany, M+P Models LONDON has become the second Ugandan model to walk for Gucci after Aamito Lagum did in 2015.
This is a major milestone for a girl who just kicked off her international modeling career just months ago in March in Capetown and she is now ruling Europe already!
Her mother agent, Joram Muzira couldn’t hide the ecstatic excitement immediately the show was done on his social media; “My very own Aketch Joy Winnie has just walked for Gucci.”
On the evening of Wednesday 30th May 2018, Gucci became the third big-name, legacy design house to show its Cruise 2019 collection in France.
For both Dior and Louis Vuitton, this presentation meant that the brands could stay a little closer to home: Dior’s respectful, rain-soaked ode to female Mexican rodeo riders was at Domaine de Chantilly, an historic chateau about 30 miles from Paris, while Louis Vuitton’s eccentric, ’80s-tinged parade took over the medieval town of Saint-Paul de Vence on the French Riviera.
Gucci, however, chose a different locale, the Provencal city of Arles; more specifically, at the Alyscamps, one of the most famous Roman necropolises of the ancient world.
