The Abryanz Style and Fashion Awards started off like a one off but in just a space of a few years, they are already taking on the local Fashion Industry and cutting across to the International market. What started off as a joke now makes headlines of newspapers and social media platform to an extent that the Awards are now called by a few fashion critics one of the best in East Africa.
The Awards which started as a joke now see International acts being nominated in the awards and they actually appreciate the awards because they mention the awards on their platforms and also come in person to pick the awards, something we don’t see with other local awards.
Every year that has passed by, the Awards have been growing to a more different level and the recently concluded edition becomes the best according to those who attended and they think the one next year will come off as bestest (luck of a better word to use).
The setting of the event has defined how Red Carpet events are supposed to be set up as Abryanz has the biggest Red Carpet. The Awards also have Ciroc, the biggest premium vodka come on board as title sponsors, something which is not seen anywhere in Uganda.
Meanwhile besides local media, BET also joined in the team that covered the event.
