Abryanz Style and Fashion Awards is back! This year’s event was officially launched on the 20th of July, 2017 at the Kampala Serena Hotel. In what promises to be the biggest edition yet, the ASFAs are back under the theme “The Fashion Takeover” to shine a global spotlight on the African Fashion industry, highlighting creativity, achievement and excellence.
Speaking about the launch, the awards founder Brian Ahumuza says, “Abryanz Style and Fashion Awards is coming back for the fifth edition now. We are so glad and excited that an idea that started five years ago has grown in bounds and we are now able to celebrate our African stylist and designers breaking barriers in the fashion industry. Adding, “This year, the event is going to be bigger and will feature fashion icons from all over the continent.”
The Abryanz Style and Fashion Awards 2017 are set to take place on the 8th of December at the Kampala Serena Hotel courtesy of leading CIROC in association with KCCA, Bell lager and NTV Uganda. The show will be produced and directed by David Tlale from South Africa, Front of House Production from Kenya, together with Fenon Events and the ASFA team supported by MNT Consult.
Under this year’s theme ‘The Fashion Takeover’, the awards seek to recognize and reward outstanding personalities in the fashion industry, who have impacted Uganda and Africa through excellence and creativity. In addition, they seek to bring to light the entrepreneurial and business aspect of the fashion industry that can be explored by the youth to better their lives and contribute positively to the economic growth of Uganda and contribute to solving the ever growing problem of unemployment.
To stamp this theme, two new categories have been introduced: Fashion Entrepreneur of the year Uganda and Fashion Entrepreneur Africa. The awards will go to individuals who have shown outstanding commercial success of their businesses or personal brands.
