3 min read

Ugandan First rising Top Model Aketch Joy Winnie has made her European bow at the Gucci Cruise 2019 walking for Gucci.

Winnie is signed to Joram Model Management (Her Mother Agency) and now placed with Fusion Model Management Capetown, M4Models in Germany, M+P Models LONDON.

Joram Muzira C.E.O Joram Model Management said,

“See God!!!!!!!!!! This is a Surreal moment right now. .. History has been made!!! Aketch Joy Winnie Just walked for Gucci at the Gucci Cruise 2019 in France!! We are sooooooooooo proud of you our little Child!!! God is beyond faithful and Amazing!!! Thank you Jesus!!!!“

Winnie who just started off her international career months ago is already gracing international runways and has become the second Ugandan Model to walk for Gucci after Aamito Lagum did in 2015.

Gucci became the third big-name, legacy design house to show its Cruise 2019 collection in France. For both Dior and Louis Vuitton, this presentation meant that the brands could stay a little closer to home: Dior’s respectful, rain-soaked ode to female Mexican rodeo riders was at Domaine de Chantilly, an historic chateau about 30 miles from Paris, while Louis Vuitton’s eccentric, ’80s-tinged parade took over the medieval town of Saint-Paul de Vence on the the French Riviera. Gucci, however, chose a different locale, the Provencal city of Arles; more specifically, at the Alyscamps, one of the most famous Roman necropolises of the ancient world.

Gucci has long had a lingering fascination with France: Just last week, the brand announced that, for one season only, it will skip Milan Fashion Week for Paris as a “three-part homage to France,” developed by Creative Director Alessandro Michele. But as evocative of or inspired by French history as Gucci’s Cruise 2019 range may have been, Michele isn’t wont to steer too far from the aesthetic for which he’s become known.
