Samson Baranga, a Ugandan fashion blogger, photographer and journalist is making news internationally following his appearance on CNN African Voices which highlights the continent’s most dazzling people who create their own subcultures in areas such as travel, fashion, art, music, technology and architecture.

Baranga was highlighted for his role as the leading promoter of the fashion industry through his fashion blog and newspaper columns. He has been at it since 2011 when he discovered that fashion articles had limited space in mainstream media hence opening one of the first fashion blogs in the country.

“Starting out was all about providing a platform for the budding fashion industry where I could feature events and personalities that are working so hard to put Uganda on the fashion map,” he said.

He has since scaled the heights including nominations in various fashion awards like Abryanz Style and Fashion Awards (ASFAs), Pearl of Africa Fashion Awards and Swahili Fashion Week East African Fashion Journalist of the year category. In 2015, he was crowned fashion blogger of the year at the ASFAs.

Baranga has covered fashion events in Uganda, Kenya, Tanzania, Rwanda and South African. In the interview, he shares his dream about making it to New York Fashion Week.
