Full Lenght Gomezi

Full Lenght Gomezi

Y, Fx, M are all dressed to kill in the Baganda traditional clothing. The women wear gomezi (Busuti)while FX wears the kanzu, which is a long white tunic worn in this fashion with a suit. The gold sash is called a kitambala and must be tied in a way to make a box shaped knot and the ends of the sash should be equal in length- as you can see we may have dressed a little bit hurriedly.
