Ghanaian fashion designer Kojo Boadi’s collection KRAKYE is a journey into time. It’s inspired by fashion in the Gold Coast era. In the early years, fashion aligned with the way of life there, which was simple. Today’s urban man is meticulous about his sense of fashion and adventurous with style. KRAKYE is a creation of a luxury and contemporary style infused with an African aesthetic.
Fashion has been and continues to be a reflection of society and current events. It serves as an expression of the self at a given point in time and place. KRAKYE is an expression of the culture and identity of the Black community. It is a voice for the marginalized Black people and a message of solidarity to the #blacklivesmatter movement.
Fashion has evolved to reflect a person’s individuality. Today, individuality has come in vogue. This Collection provides uniqueness and reflects on who we are as Black people. The design fuses comfort and style with high quality. It evokes nostalgia of the past, offering reassurance and boosting confidence. KRAKYE brings out the subtlety and beauty of African fashion and sets to pave the way for future decades of inspiring and truly influencing African fashion trends.
UPCOMING TOP EVENTS!
Ghana’s leading fashion event Accra Fashion Week is scheduled for 7-11 December 2022 following their 5th-year celebration last year in 2021. Accra Fashion Week is a platform for African designers that can be compared to fashion weeks across the major capitals. It aims to fill the void which sees tremendous creativity and culture across the continent with the absence of an operating fashion infrastructure.
The epic event took place at Ghana Dubai in Accra, and saw models march down the steps from the Kwame Nkrumah Monument whilst being followed by a spotlight, before circulating the central fountains. Memories of the exciting night still give chills as guests revisit the experience on youtube.
However, rest assured that 2022 is going to be even more exciting with greater performances and an upgraded designer collection. FashionGHANA.com is sure to bring you the exclusives we did on www.FashionGHANA.com/TV. All last year’s shows are available to watch on youtube. Designer’s registration is ongoing on the AccraFashionWeek.org website.
As we embark on another year of celebrating African culture, our theme for 2022 is “Afrofuturism.” This term was created to explore the developing intersection of cultural aesthetic, philosophy of science, and philosophy of history as it relates to the African Diaspora. During this year’s events, Afrochella will bring “Afrofuturism” to life through fashion, food, art and music. In 2019, the African Diaspora returned home to the continent for the “Year of Return.” This year, we will explore the endless possibilities of what “Afrofuturism” could look like in 2022 and beyond.
