Describe your style?
I like jeans, especially the kind with a narrow hem, and fitting designer t-shirts. I do scarfs and jackets too. I like to look good and it has nothing to do with people’s judgment.
So, it’s not about people?
Very often it is not. The only time I go for something soft and casual is when I have to interact with old folks.
What accessories do you like?
I like snapbacks, the ones basketball or football stars like to wear. They are comfortable.
What is your favourite cologne?
I use San Siro; it’s a deodorant but it has a nice smell.
Do you buy second hand clothes?
I used to but I stopped. If I want to shop, I go to Mr. Price at Kigali City Tower.There’s also a specific shop I go to in Nyamirambo.
Not even for shoes? People say they are durable.
No, I just don’t go for second-hand stuff.
Which new trends are you picking up on?
I’m now into colour. I have a pair of cotton jeans that are orange in colour.
What’s your comment on ladies’ dress code in church?
I’m not a fan of carefree dressing. There are many uncommitted Christians in church and when they see revealing clothing, they may end up not concentrating.
