We want to offer Ugandan Artists and Creative Designers of Fashion and Jewellery opportunities to exhibit and sell throughout Europe.
My name is Steve Stachini owner and founder of the blackstar.STUDIO created as a dedication to David Bowie. Please read the blackstar.STUDIO story written by the great gdson of Charles Darwin. It is inspirational.
We have partnered with Charity Namiyonga, owner and founder of the Ji-ai Fashion House http://ji-ai.com who is a talented Fashion Designer from Uganda and in setting up her fashion house in Europe and knowing the struggle that we had, we knew that we just had to do something assist others. It is clear to see the level of exploitation in Uganda, and truly talented artists and designers literally have no means or opportunity to show the world their creativity. So we came up with the idea of a joint venture "The Ji-ai blackstar Outlet Programme" where we can assist in exhibiting Ugandan talent in Europe, along with support with marketing and a collective line shop. The project has been well received and we require funding for such expenses as flights, accomodation and for shipping their work in order to exhibit. Here is a brief outline of the project: http://ji-ai.org
