2020 Edition of the Abryanz Style and Fashion Awards officially called off

The organizers for the Abryanz Style And Fashion Awards (ASFAs), Uganda’s biggest red carpet fashion awards have announced that the awards will not take place this year, marking the first time since inception for the event to be held.

The ASFAs, are continental fashion awards are a recognition of excellence and outstanding achievement in the fashion industry in Uganda and Africa and are presented to the best fashionistas around the world.

Brian Ahumuza, the founder of the ASFAs awards said that the awards were started on the idea of people coming together to socialize, network, and interact and says the cancelation of this year’s event was a decision arrived at after failing to find options that could help the organizers achieve the objectives.

“Our team did have a sit down, and we did weigh our options, in as far as embracing the new normal goes. But we have never envisioned the ASFAs being a virtually produced show, as this ruins the idea and concept on which the ASFAs started. People coming together, in one room, with all the oomph, flair and glam is what has made the ASFAs what they are today,” he said.

“So, after much consideration, putting into account the safety of our fans and guests, and also the need to give you a show that will be as remarkable and unforgettable like the last 8 years, we have made the tough decision to postpone the event to 2021,” he added.

Ahumuza said that this year and the year to come will be maximized in planning, together with their partners, Talent Africa, to ensure that they deliver a show that will give their supporters the best experience there has ever been.

Aly Allibhai, the head of Talent Africa Group who are partners in organizing ASFAs said that with the current health guidelines and ban of public events due to the pandemic, it would have been impossible for the ASFAs to give their guests the same A-list red carpet fashion experience through an online or virtual experience.

“So we have decided to come back next year with a bigger and bolder experience.”
