Africa’s most prestigious fashion event held in Kampala, Uganda: Abryanz Style and Fashion Awards (ASFAs) is back!
Speaking about the launch, the ASFAs Founder Brian Ahumuza said, “As Abryanz Style and Fashion Awards return for the fifth edition now, we are so glad and excited that an idea that started five years ago has grown in bounds! We are now able to celebrate our African stylists and designers breaking barriers in the fashion industry,” adding, “This year, the event is going to be bigger and will be featuring fashion icons from all over the continent, like never before.”
The news of big come back this year was officially announced at a launch event at the Kampala Serena Hotel. The 2017 ASFAs are back under the theme “THE FASHION TAKEOVER” – set to be the biggest edition yet with a mission to shine a global spotlight on the African Fashion industry while highlighting creativity, achievement and excellence.
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. This will overall contribute to solving the ever-growing problem of unemployment in the wider East Africa.
The 2017 Abryanz Style and Fashion Awards 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.
