“Our main aim here was to show the youth that fashion can be more than just a hobby or a lifestyle. It can be something that they can earn from by creating business from just the small projects that they can manage to start up and later develop them into big brands,” said Brian Ahumuza, proprietor of the Abryanz fashion franchise and founder of the ASFAs.

The summit featured renowned South African designer David Tlale, who shared with the audience a variety of ideas as well as advice from personal experience on how one can use their passion for fashion to start projects and monetize them.

Also among the summit speakers was celebrated radio presenter and news anchor Flavia Tumusiime, fashion designer Santa Anzo, make-up guru Mona Umutoni as well as commercial law expert Bernard Mukasa who participants tips on the legal processes involved in registering, growing and protecting a business/brand.

“The youth are the future and this summit was designed as a platform that Ciroc can use to help them access the knowledge and skills they need to improve themselves as they chase their dreams,” said Annette Nakiyaga, Head of Luxury Portfolio at Uganda Breweries Limited.

The event ended with a nominee unveiling cocktail that saw dozens of players in the local fashion industry nominated in different categories for the upcoming Abryanz Style & Fashion Awards which are slated for December 7, 2018.The nominees list is attached below.
