Fashion enthusiasts will have a chance to learn from some of the biggest names in the fashion industry at the first ever fashionpreneur summit which is being organised as part of the activities leading up to the annual Abryanz Style & Fashion Awards (ASFAs). The one-day event will be held on October 27 at Naguru Skyz Hotel in Kampala.

The summit’s main focus will be on the role of fashion, and the creative industry in shaping the future of the country’s economy. Given the increasing number of small fashion start-ups, attendees will receive expert tips and insights on how to monetize their projects, seek funding, market their brands, manage finances and lots more.

The organisers confirmed that the Ciroc-sponsored summit will feature the accomplished South African fashion designer David Tlale, who has made it big in the industry with works showcased in South Africa and on some of the hottest runways like at the Paris Fashion Week and the New York Fashion Week among others. He will be speaking about the perks of the industry and what one needs to do to make it big in the fashion world.

Tlale, will speak alongside Santa Anzo, a renowned Ugandan fashion designer who has managed to grow her fashion house ‘Arapapa by Santa Anzo’ into a globally respected brand. She will be sharing her journey of trials and triumphs, plus expert tips on how to sustain a fashion brand in Uganda.

The event shall also feature make-up guru Mona Umutoni of Mona Faces, media personality Flavia Tumsiime and last but not least Bernard Mukasa, a senior associate at ENS Africa and a specialist in corporate commercial law, intellectual property and employment law.

“The fashion industry in Africa has immense possibilities. However, to unlock all this potential, we need our youth to be empowered with at least some basic business skills to earn from their creative projects,” said Brian Ahumuza, proprietor and founder of the Abryanz Style and Fashion Awards.

“We’ve brought together experts who are excited to share their knowledge and practical skills on how to turn creative projects into income-generating businesses,” he added.

The event will run from 2pm to 5pm and will wind up with a nominees unveiling cocktail engagement starting at 6pm until late. In addition to the events nominees, sponsors shall also be unveiled. Entry to the summit is strictly by registration.

By Staff Writer

Over the week, a video of Salvado’s standup performance went viral. It was one of his most creative jokes to-date about different airlines and their themes.

On one of the jokes about Rwanda Air, genocide was mentioned as one of the topics air hostesses can’t miss.

Now Rwandans have picked that up and taken offence. They have given Salvado an ultimatum to apologize. But he is not about to allow.

On his Twitter profile, he says those offended are missing the humour. The Rwandans insist the 1994 Genocide against the tutsi is not something to joke about.
