The prestigious celebration established to recognize and honor fashion in Uganda, is aptly themed “Fashion Is Freedom.” We believe fashion is a way of expression, for many people across the world. How we portray our individualism through our dressing, all depends on what our preferences and choices are, without boundaries and restrictions.

Makeup artistes, Fashion Designers, Models, Stylists, Fashionistas, photographers, will be recognized across over 38 categories including Male and Female Continental style & fashion in luencer, East Africa’s most stylish couple, Special Recognition in
Fashion, Most fashionable music video, Lifetime Style & Fashion Icon Achievement Award among others.
The Abryanz Style & Fashion Awards was established back in 2013.
For a first time, the response was over whelming and was a great boost to the second edition. The first edition of the awards was held in 2013, at the MTN Arena, Lugogo. The well attended event had over 2,000 guests in attendance.
In attendance were Ugandan celebrities like Radio & Weasal, Exodus, Maurice Kirya, Hon. Mukasa Mbidde and many other socialites. The men’s wear designer is known for his classic and very enviable men’s suits. Also in attendance was English- Ghanaian Fashion Designer Ozwald Boateng. The reception from the public was overwhelming and this paved way for an even bigger and much more hyped up fashion and award show, the following year.
In 2014, the guests turned the glamour and glitz notch a step higher and the red carpet as one of the biggest highlights of the night.
The night was graced Kampala’s leading celebrities and artistes like Radio & Weasel, Juliana Kanyomozi, Desire Luzinda, gospel Artiste Exodus, and many others.
The night was greatly attended by many of the Ugandans in the Diaspora, including Australia based fashion designer, Suzan Mutesi that walked away with an accolade at the end of the night.
Guest list this year will include Nigerian Musical sensation Banky W, who will be the headliner artiste of the night. Other artistes include Linah Sanga from Tanzania, Bebe Cool, Juliana Kanyomozi, and many others.
Other expected guests will include Big Brother Hot shots like Idris, Tayo, Nhlanhla, and Luis. The socialite guest list includes Vera Sidika from Kenya, Huddah Monroe, Zari The Boss Lady, and many others.
The main purpose of the ASF2015 Awards is to celebrate, recognize and honor individuals and organizations that have a stake in the advancement of Uganda’s fashion industry. For the past two years, there were 22 categories, and this year, we are introducing three new categories.
The awards was started with an aim to recognize and appreciate those individuals that had spear headed the growth and progress in the fashion industry. The industry in Uganda is growing steadily as we now have majority of the youth venturing out into careers in the fashion industry as designers, makeup artistes, stylists and many others.
So we only found it befitting to create a platform that not only appreciated these individuals but also created a meeting point for all these individuals. Our vision is to create a prestigious and very professional platform that would help boost the fashion industry and see Uganda competing fairly with other countries on the continent.
NTV Uganda and Capital FM are the official media partners for the Abryanz Style & Fashion Awards, 2015.
