30 Ways in 30 Days: Sseko Designs

 

How often have you heard the old phrase “there’s more than one way to skin a cat”? Be it that this popular phrase is totally true, Uganda-based company, Sseko Designs has put a whole new spin on the saying. According to their August campaign, 30 Ways in 30 Days, obviously there’s more than one way to style your sandals.

30 Ways in 30 Days encouraged Sseko sandal owners to share their personal sandal style and learn a few new tricks from others along the way. Women were asked to upload a photo showing off their sandal fashion and share it with the Sseko community. The campaign also featured a contest: each week, one lucky winner won an Exclusive Sseko Style Pack, including a $100 gift card and a mystery gift. Everyone who submitted a picture was rewarded with a 15% discount code, redeemable on the online store. This ‘mystery gift’, an accessories line, was finally revealed after the contest end date and will definitely continue to foster and promote the creative spirit of the brand.

The sandal’s simple design paired with beautiful patterns, shades trendy pedicures guaranteed all entries were unique and original, and now with the launch of an accessories collection, the possibilities are endless. Dubbed by the company as the “ultimate styling competition”, the style campaign put user-generated content at the forefront, allowing individual style to remain the center focus. The sandals are gorgeous but with some creativity and ingenuity – the sandals become an eye-catching fashion statement. Never run out of style inspiration with Sseko Designs’ 30 Ways in 30 Days.
