KAS WEAR is an Urban Indigenous Lifestyle clothing line by Ugandan fashion designer Ras Kasozi. Each piece is uniquely designed, combining African prints and rare textiles with a contemporary fit and feel. All his work is inspired by various social issues in our community. He intends to continue building bridges between young people and the communities they dwell in and also exploring all aspects of celebrating the beautiful struggle we call life and to continue to produce fashion that carries a message and links the consumer’s values to what they are wearing.
Merita founders had the privilege of being present for Vancouver Fashion Week S/S 2013 as KAS WEAR’s Urban Indigenous, vibrant 24 look collection made it’s international debut. As the models rounded the cat walk, designer Ras Kasozi received a standing ovation, affirming the success of his humble beginnings and solidifying this as a historical moment for the fashion industry in Uganda.
Ras Kasozi is one of the new exciting progressive designers redefining the fine art of using and embracing simple elegant touches of art and stitching to give you that customized top of the line product. We are happy to be bringing an exclusive Merita, KAS WEAR line to you for Spring 2014.
“I strongly believe in bringing back a sense of pride among the youth through fashion by sharing and educating them about the importance of recognizing the value of their art and sense of fashion”.
~ Charles Kasozi (Ras.K)
