Despite her prowess in the fashion industry Aulgah is however a self-taught genius. She didn’t take on fashion at her A’ levels as her father wouldn’t stomach it, instead she pursued Public Relations and Communication from The University of Nairobi.
After graduation she secured a communication job at a PR firm. This was short lived as 2 years later obsessed with her ambition, she rendered her resignation and stepped out to build her dream.
‘Aulgah Nato’ began in 2014 in her bedroom. Armed with a sewing machine, a little savings from her previous job and her imaginable dream, Aulgah kicked off designing in her own space taking it a step at a time. Crazy as it may sound the artistic creations she made sold out one after another and in no time built a brand.
Versatile as she is, incorporating different fabrics, silhouettes, colors and prints, Aulgah has strived effortlessly towards putting ‘Aulgah Nato’ on the map making it not just a renowned brand in Kenya but in the world at large. From glamorous gowns to flirty casual pants and dresses, she thrives towards celebrating the physical nature of every woman making her beautiful in her own shape.
Most of her pieces speak to the risk takers, the woman who is in cognizant of fact that she is hotter than anyone else and is ready to be modest about it.
She is like a grain of sand introduced into the shell of an oyster with gradual coatings of different layers from the environment trying to provide comfort within her surroundings. This gives light to the color filled transition in her creation as she finds herself armed with varying shades.
She is known today for her unique creations that celebrate a woman’s curves aiming at making her feel confident and beautiful. With an established clothing label, Aulgah has showcased her designs on both local and international runways. Adding to her name she has bagged numerous award nominations and brought home quite a number of accolades.
