Anita Fabiola claims that the dolce and gabbana fabric used to hand-stitch the gomesi she wore during her Kuhingira ceremony was purchased by her husband for her in Istanbul, Turkey. Anita Fabiola Kyarimpa and Mark Ronald Mubiru took a big step toward holy wedlock on January 5th, 2023, with a lavish Kuhingira (introduction) ceremony.
Many people at the ceremony were interested in a number of things, including Mark Ronald’s present of a brand-new Mercedes Benz to the actress and media figure. Although there was much to marvel at in terms of the design and guest attire, Anita Fabiola’s gomesi had many people in awe.
According to Fabiola, the fabric used to hand-stitch the dress was bought in Istanbul, Turkey, and it weighed almost 15 kg in addition to the 7 kg kitambala (the waist piece). She recalls that the complete ensemble was a little too heavy for her to move around in comfortably, but she likes the way it looks.
“On our recent Istanbul trip, my hubby bought me this Dolce & Gabbana Crystal fabric (weighed more than 15kgs) plus this Pure silk fabric (used for kitambala also Dolce & Gabbana & weighed 7kgs).
“It had to be carried around in its own suitcase So when we got to Uganda, Kushona designers handstitched my gomesi for me. Although extremely heavy to walk around in, it was fabulous and my absolute favorite.
“I woke up with lots of cuts and bruises plus chest pain from carrying all the weight around (my mwenda was really heavy too because it was pure Swarovski crystals but not as heavy as gomesi).”
