Corona Virus has altered the norm for the fashion world but in truth, it is simply working to filter the unnecessary activities executed all year round to the most essentials. All of these aspects are what is leading to a new and refined Accra Fashion Week dubbed ‘VIRTUAL INSANITY’.
According to the AFWk Team “We chose Virtual Insanity, simply based on the fact it will be a virtual show and the designs will be mind-blowing. It’s also a term from the famous song by UK British band Jamiroquai of which we will pick inspiration of the hit song and video ‘Virtual Insanity’.”
“The concept of the virtual show is a new insert into the world of fashion however we feel Accra Fashion Week can take this concept to the next level, and based on that we can’t say much more until you witness it yourself.”
The show will be hosted on FashionGHANA.com’s Facebook page with over 1 million guests and also streamed live on Accra Fashion Week’s youtube page with 10,000 subscribers. In addition to this will be a live show with very few limited guests and tickets.
The show is set to host Africa’s biggest and most stylish ready to wear and couture brands and leave a crack in the world of fashion. The announcement came shortly after the event historically succeeded 2million views on one of its runway shows surpassing
