Have you ever wished that your local tailor would make an outfit on demand and as fast as possible? A Ugandan fashion designer demonstrates that this is entirely possible.
Latif Madoi has mastered the art of making outfits in just minutes. He calls it Afro-fashion magic and it is indeed quite close to magic.
His reputation has grown since he first developed the concept while working in Paris, where he took a piece of fabric and turned it into a dress in just four minutes.
In an interview with the BBC, he said he now performs "fast fashion shows" or fashion concerts, where he makes 10 or 15 dresses in two hours.
Latif has also won several awards for his impressive feats as well as designs.
