Local fashionistas and fashion enthusiasts will have to wait a bit longer to find out if they are in the running for Uganda’s coveted fashion awards this year. This after organisers of the Abryanz Style & Fashion Awards postponed the release of the final short list of nominees.
According to the organisers, the release of the nomination list has been postponed to 28th October 2016 due to the “large number of nominee submissions and the extensive, stringent and often intense judging process”.
They further revealed that postponement is aimed at allowing more time to potential nominees to submit the requirements needed to make it to the final nomination list.
Meanwhile, the 2016 Abryanz Style & Fashion Awards have come with a lot of changes with the search for fashion talent stretched to as far as central, and Southern Africa. New categories have been introduced which will see awards competed for on a regional level and others on a continental level.
The award ceremony is scheduled to take place on 9th December, 2016.
