This week welcome with me Atai Elizabeth to the No Ordinary Scribbles table to share more about her brand unique Liz, turning passion into a profession.
1. Who is Atai Elizabeth in a few words.
Atai is a simple heart/head girl with a huge heart for beauty. She is extremely creative, outgoing ,stylish and loves Jesus.
2. Did your creative and stylish persona lead to the birth of Unique Liz?
Yes, because people constantly asked me where I got my clothes from and I used to help most of them shop.
3. Describe Unique Liz in a few words.
Unique Liz is a brand that focuses on shopping clothes for clients as well as styling. The shopping ranges from kwanjula or kuhingira outfits to casual clothes, office attire or party dresses and so much more. It’s been running for 1 year, 11 months and we are about to make a year, yeiiii, Ebenezer.
4. Have you always been passionate about fashion & shopping?
I have always loved fashion in that when I was younger,I wanted to be Miss.Uganda. I remember we used to model using towels and scarves in our dormitories. I won Miss.Giraffe…????
Shopping came in later when people constantly asked me where I got my clothes from and I also used to help most of them shop. It also grew because I used it as therapy when my mother passed on last year. They call it retail therapy. This contributed to the solidification of Unique Liz as a brand.
5. How does unique liz operate,if one desires your services?
Well, Unique Liz desires to make her clients her friends. Therefore, we set an appointment, it could be both physical or virtual (phone mainly). I may ask for pictures to know clients’ sizes and taste (if it’s over the phone). After the appointment, I get the client an estimated budget for whatever they have ordered for so that a deposit is made. Then I go downtown, take photos of the clothes and send to clients. Sometimes I just buy the item because I trust my taste.
