In August 2015 we presented some selected items of our new Spring 2016 collection in a fashion show as part of a Fashion Gala organized by the Rwanda Fashion Designers Council (RFDC) that has our RWANDA CLOTHING designer Joselyne Umutoniwase as its leader.

Joselyne, following and developing further her Summer 2014 collection for RWANDA CLOTHING, used denim again as one of the main materials also for this collection.


In contrast to her Summer 2014 denim collection that used the material denim to create a rougher and more casual street style, Joselyne this time wanted to show other possibilities for designing a Jeans collection. This Spring 2016 denim collection makes denim much more elegant and creates looks that can be worn at any time and especially for going out in the evening.

The collection qualifies more decent colors – main colors are blue and yellow in a perfect combination with berry shades nuanced between darker red and purple -but it also has this African soul and spirit of all of Joselyne’s creations for RWANDA CLOTHING.

The accessories and jewelry like earrings and necklaces for this collection were designed by Antoinette Twagirayezu who is Joselyne’s design assistant and RWANDA CLOTHING’s Production Manager and second designer.

The fashion show took place on the 22nd of August 2015 at the residency of the Belgium ambassador to Kigali, Mr. Arnout Pauwels, who invited together with the Rwanda Fashion Designers Council (RFDC) to a Gala Fashion Show.

Photographer at this event for RWANDA CLOTHING was Patrick Nsengimana.
