My Style: Karisa Uzabumwana Sharif – Day 4
I’m Karisa Uzabumwana Sharif, a Rwandan by nationality although I prefer referring to myself as East African. I’m from Rwanda but moved to Uganda in 2007 when my dad started working as a tailor in Kampala. I’m now pursuing my studies in Nasville USA, where I also work as a chef at a restaurant.
Style to me is like a craving, the way people crave stuff to eat. If my craving are shorts with high top sneakers, that’s what I’ll wear. I also prefer being comfortable in what I choose to wear.
I shop at many places here such as H&M, Forever 21, Louis Vuitton (sometimes) and any other spot I’ll find a nice pair of shoes. My dad is a tailor, so a couple of times he gives me stuff to wear.
I don’t really have a style icon, although I look up to a number of guys for style inspiration. Sauti Sol, Fally Ipupa, Eddy Kenzo and Chris Brown. I like that they have different tastes, but always stick to their personal style. They also love colour, which is something I love as well.
This was one of my first photoshoots in the USA. The shirt is a creation made by my papa. The weather was cool, perfect for a fedora.
