Accra Fashion Week 2017 is currently the talk of Ghana after making a tremendous impact in 2016 topping all other fashion events. The 2017 edition is set to take place from 3rd – 8th October at the International Trade Fair Center and host a wide range of designers from across Africa, Europe and America as did the previous event.
This year’s fashion extravaganza is dubbed ‘The Buyers Opportunity’. This is based on the ethos that Ghanaians and African designers as a whole need to take the approach of realizing their brand’s worth, and applying it to their business and showcasing it as such on the day of their AFWk show. And in the direction fashion is moving in today, it is more of an opportunity for the local boutiques and international buyers to engage in business with African designers.
Accra Fashion Week 2016 made a gracious introduction last year in 2016 with the theme from Batik2Boutique. The organizers put the event through with the purpose of encouraging local stores in Ghana to become more receptive to the home grown fashion in Ghana.
This years event is set to feature designers from US, Brazil and America, as well as many amazing African designers.
