Accra Fashion Week 2020/21 Summer Harmattan just ended this December gone. The virtual show made a revolution in Africa by being the first of it’s kind to go virtual.
One thing we can take away from the event is African print may not have fully run it’s course yet. Not that there is anything to indicate that, but in the case that it was out of your fashion season you may need to relook it over.
Mikoko Deluxe is a new fashion brand hailing from Ghana Accra and totally blew minds away with its astonishing show during Accra Fashion Week.
There is no doubt that the world was granted the opportunity to witness the best models strut amongst the top brands that the republic of Ghana had to offer. However Mikoko Deluxe brought a collection that should not be over looked.
Mikoko Deluxe Presented Its Breath Taking Cherise Collection
The brand introduced it’s ‘Cherise’ collection delivering the African print fashion flavour, all whilst staying away from wax print cloth.
Mikoko Deluxe delivered astonishing prints with the use of Silk and Chiffon, their outfits were styled with beautiful fringed face masks and fascinators, whilst top Ghanaian model strutted with fans to compliment their cool persona.
The introduction of silk African print to the new wave of African trendy styles was one that was unimaginable.
Silk African prints have been in the market for some time, however to apply to modern trends as opposed to that of couture or customized African look was astonishing.
The pieces were jaw dropping and you can watch it right below courtesy of Accra Fashion Week.

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.
