Solome Katongole’s Bio | Fashion Influence and Background

I was born in Uganda and raised in Columbia, MD. I have always been aware of fashion from a young age and as I grew older my passion for fashion design grew as well.

I have a bachelors of science in Biology. I first showcased my designs as an undergraduate at the University of Massachusetts Boston.

I honed my skills by designing for and participating in local fashion shows. In 2008 I moved to LA to pursue my dream of becoming a professional designer.

I attended the Fashion Institute of Design and Merchandising, I graduated with a Major in Fashion Design.

I am inspired by color and nature. I design clothes that make a woman feel great, sophisticated, and sexy.

I create garments that are comfortable and make a statement. I love dance, traveling to warm areas wearing bright bright and soft colors, so I translate color and dance and a sense of feel into my fashion giving my customers the freedom to define their own style.  My future plans are to have my own line and boutique.

The images below  give you a sneak peek at some of my work, please take a moment to view and feel free to comment and contact me.
