Every year the city of Memphis based in the USA, state of Tennesse to be precise, hosts the Memphis In May Festival, a major ceremony that generates more than $149 million in economic impact. The mission of Memphis in May International Festival is to promote and celebrate Memphis culture, foster economic growth, and enhance international awareness through education.
Each year, the state picks a particular country from around the world to celebrate, this year happens to be Ghana.
Memphis in May International Festival aims to bring Ghana to Memphis and Memphis to the world. While Ghana is visible in all our event themes, we dedicate a whole week of the month’s programming to Ghana during our International Salute. The International Salute is the perfect chance for Americans to wrap themselves in Ghana’s culture.
With that said, the creative team at FashionGHANA.com decided to make this an emphasis of our latest editorial title ‘Accra to Memphis’. The Accra To Memphis editorial sees two stunning and stylish ladies from the ladies, totally lost in the bliss of their yet-to-be travel experience. Whilst they exhaust all means to discover the necessary transportation means, we take a moment to admire their eloquent style with outfits from Style By Magbrien and FashionGHANA’s ‘DIRECTION’ collection.

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.
