In July 2020, out of the lockdown that saw many tailors resort to working from their houses, making face masks because very few people had money to spend on buying new clothes, a dream to promote UGANDan fashion products to the globe was brought to life! This is non other than the trillion looks store.
The life of tailors and seamsttresses In Uganda isn’t the best life any fashion designer can admire. The UGANDan fashion industry is clogged with fashion designers who have turned into mere tailors. These face competition from second hand clothes, low pay for their work, high material costs which later affect the prices of custom made products to the final consumer.
Trillion Looks Store is established to boost the UGANDAN designers and help them earn from their designs, creative and tailoring skills and give UGANDan fashion consumers an affordable african fashion alternative.
Trillion looks store is a one stop shopping center for ankara fashion styles made by Ugandans. The store runs an online shop where online buyers can order already made items of different sizes. The orders can be delivered locally with in 2- 3 days and globally up to 2 weeks.
The products are priced in ugandan shillings and highly affordable. To encourage local buyers. ‘We are pricing in UGANDan shillings and allowing buyers pay using mobile money’
International buyers can use master card, VISA and PayPal to purchase these fashion products. Trillion Looks Store’s online shop has been launched at a time when travel has been banned in many countries, there is hope that the african fashion products, with the brilliant colors can shade a light and good memories of the good old days to buyers when their products are delivered on their door step.
Hopefully, the activities of the store will improve the lifestyle of our local fashion designers and bring so many new creative designs into the fashion industry both locally and globally.
The operation model is new in Uganda, however, with the shift to the use of technology globally, there is a high probably that the store will grow in a short while.
