The 2016 Abryanz Style and Fashion Awards (ASFA) list of nominees was released at a glamorous and intimate event held at Kampala Serena Hotel on Thursday night.




The awards that are held in partnership with CÎROC Ultra-Premium vodka have 25 categories and over 500 nominees this time round and have transcended borders to become a continental event, as the nominee list clearly indicates.

“After a successful three year run, the awards will be embracing the continent; crossing from East Africa to the rest of Africa, recognizing fashion icons that are steering Africa onto the global fashion map,” said Ms Gloria Haguma, the awards’ Head of Communications.

In a bid to stamp their footprint onto the continent, the awards will also be launched on November 3, 2016 in Namibia during the Windhoek Fashion Week.

After the announcement of nominees, voting opened at exactly midnight on October 28, 2016 and will be done via website, social media and SMS for the 35% public vote. It closes on December 8, 2016

The 2016 ASFAS is slated for December 9, 2016 at the Kampala Serena Hotel’s Victoria Ball Room starting at exactly 6pm under the theme, “Dress to Inspire”.

UBL’s Luxury Brands Manager Annette Nakiyaga adresses the media.

“CÎROC is proud to be associated with Africa’s premier fashion event for the second year running. It is the ultimate celebration drink, and Abryanz Style and Fashion Awards are about celebration of fashion. As you must have heard, the awards’ organisation Brian Ahumuza was recently appointed CÎROC Uganda Ambassador, so we are glad to partner with him on his endeavours to transform the continental fashion landscape,” UBL’s Luxury Brands Manager, Ms Annette Nakiyaga said.

“Much as I would like to let the cat out of the bag, at the moment I can only say, brace yourselves for show stopping Fashion showcases from Africa’s leading fashion designers, performances from Africa’s biggest artistes and the biggest and most glamorous, red carpet Africa has seen ever,” Haguma said of what to expect at the awards.
