There was a red-accent side slit in Barbie Itungo’s designed outfit. The first lady of the National Unity Platform finished her look with a red strappy kitten heel, a red cross-body purse and a red cap on her head, reflecting the colour of the People Power movement.

“She gave us the colour to work with and we came up with this concept of a skirt suit with subtle accents of red,” he said in an interview  with Satisfashion UG, explaining that red is their colour, he wanted to show that the colour is within. 

“Ordinarily, someone would think of a having white on top and red on the bottom, but everyone knows this is their colour, so we opted to go with just accents of it as you saw in the buttons, slit and her accessories.”

To reflect the red colour, Robert Kyagulanyi complemented the double-breasted pinstriped grey suit with a thin red tie and a red pocket square.
