About Me

 I'm Charlene Yemmah, a Runway and Editorial model, a Beauty Therapist by qualification and Entrepreneur.
Home Town: Kampala,Uganda
Residence: Europe
Age: 25
Experience: Modeling - 9 years/ Beauty Therapy - 1 year/ Entrepreneurship - 3 years (Yarnissima brand)

Raised in Kampala I started out in the local modelling scene in Kampala.Working with multiple local designers and participating in fashion shows including Kampala Fashion Week. I later moved to Europe to further my education and started working with the top local modeling agency there on the side. With this, I have booked jobs all around Malta with both local and international brands including Cartier, Adidas, Fila, Charles and Ron, Dan John, Nikolai Mifsud among others.

My dream is to walk the fashion week season for top designers like Oscar de la Renta, Christian Dior, Alexander McQueen and Versace, among others. 


Outside of modelling, I have worked as a marketing executive that tests beauty products and innovative cosmetic packing and applicators for luxury brands.  Constantly being surrounded by makeup products and learning about the latest trends in beauty and formulations sparked a huge interest in wanting to dive more into the beauty world.  I enrolled with an accredited beauty school where I obtained  a CIBTAC diploma in Beauty therapy and aesthetics and become a certified beauty therapist. I also have various certificates in the beauty service industry for massage,nails and eyelash extensions. I'm currently pursuing a bachelor's degree in cosmetic science.

My big dream is eventually create my own line of beauty products for the darker complexion community. Hopefully one day this will become a reality.

In 2020 when the pandemic first hit and there we were all at home, I developed a passion for crocheting. Bringing back all the memories of my childhood and crocheting with my mother.Watching her create all these extraordinary mater pieces and how she put so much attention to all those little details. From clothing to wall art pieces, all entirely by hand. It brought back all these memories of closeness and warmth. It all started as a hobby that turned into a small summer piece brand 'Yarnisimma.'  Now I collaborate with my mother to create the most beautiful and affordable summer pieces and art. We create customised crochet swimwear and summer pieces. After all if you look good, you feel good.

For any customised pieces or any piece that catches your eye on my website, don't hesitate to send out an enquiry. For any bookings contact me on the form below.
