PICTURES FORM THE ABRYANZ STYLE AND FASHION AWARDS 2015
Last weekend I had the pleasure of attending the most prestigious fashion Awards in East Africa:The annual Abryanz Style and Fashion Awards.
Running for the third time since their inception,this year was a whole lot different.
The awards were host to a number of  international celebrities ranging from Nigeria's Banky W,Tayo Faniran,Swanky Jerry, to Kenya's Vera Sidika,Sauti Sol,Rwanda's Moses Moshions,Tanzania's Linah Sanga and Idris Sultan; to mention but a few.
Pulling  such big names to one fashion event was testament to the fact that Ugandan fashion has indeed come of age.
No longer do we have to travel abroad so we can rub shoulders with the people we admire or see on TV but can now, bring them home,to events organised by ourselves.
Thanks to the CEO of the event,Ahumuza Brian for paving the way.
THE POWER OF NETWORKING IN THE FASHION INDUSTRY
Hello Fashionistas,

Apologies for being  away.I was so busy with a gig that i hardly had time to blog.Now that am back,however, you can expect the usual glamorous pictures and inspirational stories.
Well, well,my social life has been crazy of late.I have been hoping from one party to another and not once ever declining an invite.
Why?Because now more than ever i have realized the power of networking.
(Inset:My friends and I at the Radio and TV Awards.)
The industry of Fashion is one that is highly dynamic and competitive and as such it helps to build a strong social network,one that will support you,recommend you to clients and ensure that your dreams become reality.

THE DAY DBANJ CAME TO KAMPALA
Thursday the 12 th of November was a pretty fun day for me.The day before, my editor had asked me if I would like to attend a press conference of Dbanj.I almost declined the invite,after all I had better things to do.
But I said yes.Turns out it was a good idea afterall.I got to hang with one of Africa's finest musicians and ofcourse take pictures.
Dbanj is one of the most popular African musicians on the international platform and is best known for songs such as 'Oliver Twist' and 'fall in love.'
He has such a strong personality and his sense of humour and dramatic antics kept us all glued onto him from the time he stepped into the room, to when he left.Like a real super star he had our attention,that we quickly forgot that the man had kept us waiting for two hours,in the same hotel he was sleeping in.

WHAT I WORE TO DINNER RECENTLY


Hey fashionitas!!!!!!!I recently got invited to a UN dinner party:And as is with all sophisticated things you must dress the part.So i pulled out this hot pink dress which cost me a lot of money lol, and paired it with a multitude of accessories. Lupita Nyong'o with her natural hair and headbands was my fashion muse.
What stood out for me, however, was the essence of the event,which was to empower women,advocate for maternal health and better planning for Uganda.
Iam very passionate about women empowerment and  was actively involved in politics in my university days so this dinner certainly gave me a platform to mingle with like minded people.
Here are a few pics ,from the event,I hope u like.xoxo

BILLIONAIRE DAUGHTER,NADIA MBIIRE'S TOP TEN STYLE MOMENTS

Nadia Mbire is the second daughter of city tycoon Charles Mbiire. Charles Mbire is one of the largest individual shareholders in MTN, among other investments, making him one of the richest men in Uganda.
For Nadia,being a daughter to such a man comes with certain privileges. For example she can travel whenever she wants,lives in designer wear and throws one of a kind parties.
The last I heard is that she only drinks camel milk as imported for her from Dubai, because she is on a diet, and the milk in Uganda is full of calories,lol.
This is not a gossip blog however so we shall safely gear away from her personal life and focus on Nadia the fashionista.
Here are ten times this beautiful young lady stole our breath away.

1.The time she wore these gym pants with a white crop top#Body goals.She could have ditched the office bag for a back pack though.

TRENDS WE LOVE:THE BLACK AND WHITE SUIT
The black and white suit is the ultimate symbol of women empowerment in fashion,its where the women get to steal from the men and still look as fly,isn't that what gender equality is about?To be able to have equal opportunities with men and in this case style choices?haha
So anyways back to this item,i love a woman in a black and white suit, especially on the red carpet, because it makes you stand out from the sea of long flowing evening dresses while at the same time giving you a new kind of sex appeal and attractiveness that is not normally expected.
I mean who can resist a woman who looks like she has got her shit together?That my dear,is sexiness.So dare to bring out your inner tomboy in this boy meets girl ensemble,trust me ,u will love it!
THE CROP TOP AND  FLARED TROUSERS TREND
When crop tops first came around,a few people were afraid of wearing them reasoning that they would make them look cheap and indecent.
Most of these women, being working mothers, were not so welcoming of the idea that their belly would be out for the whole world to see.
So being the fashionista that i am(lol) i have decided to show you a few looks on how to wear the crop top without looking cheap or even totally indecent.
Such as Omotola's below......


Some of these looks can even go to formal events such as dinners or even to the work place if your top is a bit longer like Rita Dominic wore hers below.
The trick is to reveal very little of your belly/stomach in a way that is more classy than cheap.
Then compensate for the revealed belly with wide legged trousers that will cover the rest of your lower body.
With that in mind this look will result in a very fun and sexy  and classy look,i will keep u updated for more!

TRENDS WE LOVE:KAFTANS

A kaftan by definition is a robe like clothing.Kaftans do well for women of all sizes ,depending on how they are styled or draped across the body.
They are even more amazing because they can be worn anywhere,from work to the beach and to that weekend party.

Kaftans are easy to wear, comfortable and decent,attributes that every woman longs for every once in a while
The trick is to know which type of Kaftan looks good on your body shape.For example a plus size woman would look smashing in a long flowing kaftan,while a petite size woman would look better with one that is more fitting onto the body.
