The Abryanz Style & Fashion Awards is well-known globally for the role it plays in advocacy and convening dialogues around social issues about the Business of Fashion in Africa and its sustainability. This is usually achieved through the use of workshops, high-profile speakers, and Summits around fashion in Africa.
Coming back after 2 years, ASFAs presents a 3-day Fashion Weekend. The event reflects on how the fashion industry has gone through many changes in the last few years. We saw big brands with a lot of resources struggling to navigate this new normal, and thought; how much harder can it be for local, small, .and medium enterprises?
“To be a young designer navigating the markets, especially after the pandemic is not easy. This fashion weekend is a platform for young creatives who seek futuristic opportunities to collaborate and amplify their brands, or simply better understand the markets” said Brian Ahumuza, the CEO of Abryanz Style & Fashion Awards.
This year the ASFA’s contributes to the sustainability of local brands through the ASFA Fashion weekend. Every year is kicked off with a diverse theme that becomes an imperative element of the main show. This year, the launch comes back with a 3-day event, the “Asfa Fashion Weekend” under the theme “The Awakening”. The ASFA Fashion Weekend will take place on the 11th, 12th, and 13th of November 2022 at MoTIV. While the public will enter for free, designers and all exhibitors that are interested in showcasing their fashionable works are invited to book their space.
Through this fashion weekend, the first day will see business owners, artists, and all fashion creatives exhibiting their work while engaging in dialogues with fellow creatives and fostering collaborations. The second day will be a workshop where fashion influencers and business thought leaders will give keynote presentations. A panel of experts engages the audience in discussions, testimonials, and Q&A sessions inspiring them to take on global markets. The third day will be the announcement of nominees for the Abryanz Style and Fashion Awards happening on 16th December at Kampala Serena Hotel.
