After putting Ghanaian fashion on the global map, Accra Fashion Week is ready to set the nail in the coffin by placing Accra as a fashion capital in Africa amongst all in a set to come epic Summer/Harmattan season edition from 2-6th October 2019.
Accra Fashion Week, put together by FashionGHANA.com has witnessed growth after growth. Last year, the event was the first to introduce Sub Sahara African seasons to the world of fashion by holding a bi annual show. Organisers believe Ghana hold the best location, history and talent to become the central hub for fashion on the continent.
“We have a lot instore for the Summer Harmattan edition, in fact it may seem as though everything we have learnt and done was to prepare us for an epic show in October 2019. The amount of companies contacting us to be a part of this is unbelievable. We are not just referring to sponsors, but companies that want to see a development in Africa and African fashion, and this is why we know and believe everything is in the right direction.” – Nana Tamakloe
“Fashion has two faces to it, there is the glamour end, and then the industry end. In Africa most companies have for so long focused on the glamour side of putting on fashion shows, that when it comes to the core eccentric aspect of business they are far from processing it despite the few that may advertise it as such. The most they will identify with this is by hoping one or two guests may buy clothes on the runway. During our whole existence and prior to that, we have been about remoulding the whole African fashion world. However, most of this has also been occupied with us finding our feet as far as organising a show is concerned since it started in 2016. Now we are about to give Ghana the fashion platform it deserves and tap into this $2.4 Trillion industry that has mimicked our creativity for centuries. Rest assure it will be an epic event”
Accra Fashion Week launched in 2016, by 2017 it was heavily featured on all mainstream press, from Getty Images, DailyMail, WWD, CNN and more. The show has made tremendous history in a short space and time with the objective to develop the designer buyer relationship in Africa. This year, it will enhance this reality much further with a state of the art fashion ceremony. For more information visit www.AccraFashionWeek.org.
