ABRYANZ STYLE AND FASHION AWARD S ANNOUNCE 2018 NOMINEES IN 14 CATEGORIES INCLUDING, DESIGNER OF THE YEAR, STYLIST OF YEAR, FASHION WRITER OF THE YEAR AMONGST OTHERS.

ABRYANZ STYLE AND FASHION AWARDS HOST THE FIRST ANNUAL FASHIONPRENUER SUMMIT WITH A POWERFUL LIST OF PANELIST TO EMPOWER AND INSPIRE CREATIVES TO TURN THEIR PASSIONS INTO BUSINESS.

ASFAS BRING TOGETHER TOP DESIGNERS AND STYLISTS FOR A FASHION EXHIBITION WHERE THEY DISPLAYED THEIR WORKS OF ART, BRINGING THE DIFFERENT CREATIVES TO NETWORK AND WORK TOGETHER.

After five successful events since its inception in 2013, Abryanz Style and Fashion Awards (ASFAs) returns for its sixth edition to be held on 7th December, 2018 at Kampala Serena Hotel.

Over the past few weeks, the team has carefully selected the nominees for this year’s event in lieu with the thousands of entries received since the nomination process kicked off last month. This coveted list was unveiled last Saturday, 27th October, 2018 at a swanky cocktail event.

The day kicked off with the first ASFA’s Fashionpreneur Summit, under the topic: “Fashion & Africa Rising: The Role of Fashion in the Socio- Economic Growth of the continent.”

The summit featured a stellar line-up of panelists which included;NTV’s Flavia Tumusiime who shared an engaging talk on Digital Marketing transformation, top city lawyer, Bernard Mukasa, talked about the importance of corporate governance, Imagine Design’s Abdul Abeine discussed the role of Technical Vocational training in the creative and fashion industry, Santa Anzo gave a keynote speech on the state of the global fashion industry and the opportunities therein, and Monalisa Umutoni of Mona faces who shared her inspiring story of trial to triumph.

The summit also featured a fashion exhibition where some of Uganda’s top creatives displayed their works of art. These were joined by David Tlale, who displayed a fabulous gown with a frill filled bodice and lace sleeves. The team promise to put on an even bigger exhibition during the event in December.  After the summit, attendees were led to the cocktail event held to reveal this year’s list of nominees. The swanky invite-only party hosted the who’s who of Uganda’s fashion and entertainment industry. This year’s list of nominees is a reflection of the entrepreneurial potential of the fashion industry.

“Every nominee on this list is not just creating, but also tapping deeply into the business potential of what they do,” shared Brian Ahumuza.

The mission of the awards is to promote fashion and the arts, encourage ethnic diversity, and reflect a positive image of Africa. It continues to push for African excellence in a bid to promote the extremely eccentric and colourful fashion scene in Africa which the media so often neglects. This has over the years been the DNA onto which the event is built.

Abryanz Style and Fashion Awards will continue its blooming relationship with last year’s main sponsor Ciroc Ultra-Premium Vodka and media partners NTV Uganda and Capital FM for this year’s edition. Other sponsors include; Serena Hotel KampalaSouth African AirwaysUberSchweppes, Incredible MediaKaisha Dog trainers and Imagine designs.

“We would like to also thank everyone who participated in the nomination process and has supported and worked with the ASFAs thus far. We therefore promise another mind-blowing experience at Africa’s premier fashion event in December,” Ahumuza concluded.
