 Patricia Akello

Otherwise known as Tricia Kello, this 25-year-old Ugandan model signed with Muse Model Management Company. She began pursuing modeling after high school to no avail. A friend connected her with Joram Job Muzira and Akello was signed to the Joram Model Management Agency. This enabled her to be featured in the 2014 Kampala Fashion Week. After the event, Akello signed with South African agency Fusion Models. Subsequently, she walked in Berlin for the 2015 and 2016 Mercedes-Benz Fashion Weeks.  In 2016, Akello signed with Muse and relocated to NY. She is also signed with Paris-based MP Management and German-based M4 Models Management concurrently.  In 2017, she appeared on the runway for NY Fashion Week and has been featured in Women’s Wear Daily Magazine and has worked for the Bottega Veneta brand.

It’s exciting to see the hustle from cradle to grave.  We can’t wait to see these young starlets climb to the top.
