Fashion aficionados were treated to yet another extravaganza of dress and style at the sixth edition of the Abryanz Style & Fashion Awards that took place on Friday at the Kampala Serena Hotel.

The event, a celebration of fashion in Uganda and across Africa attracted some of the continent’s top fashion designers and industry trend- setters who were a picture of glamour as they strutted on the red carpet to the Victoria Ballroom, which hosted the spectacular event.

Hosted by Kenya’s Anita Nderu and Tracy Wanjiru the Ciroc-sponsored event awarded those who are making their mark in the fashion world with the night’s big winner being Fatuma Asha who won the award for Fashion designer of the year (Uganda) and Saida Beauty who was named Makeup artist of the year.

“The fashion industry in Uganda had over the years not been given the respect due to it. I am glad that the ASFAs have changed this and created an awareness to what fashion has to offer and the positive impact it can have to the country’s economy,” said Brian Ahumuza, proprietor of Abryanz Style & Fashion Awards.

The fashion gala also featured showcases from some of Africa’s and Uganda’s top designers, including Nigeria’s Mai Atafo, South Africa’s David Tlale and Laduma Ngoxokolo, Uganda’s Anita Beryl of Beryl Couture, Alex Alecool of Alecool Clothing and Kkoolo among others.

The fashion extravaganza also features performances from Ugandan artists like Spice Diana, Lydia Jasmine, and the highlight of it all being Lillian’s performance attribute to the Late Mose radio.
