We are exploring the wide range of fashion covered around the African continent as our main interest has been the promotion of African fashion worldwide. Our interest was piqued by the Mozambican brand, Cuccia. It is a brand that uses homemade African prints to create beautiful outfits with a touch of Mozambique wildlife culture.
Cuccla dwells and capitalizes on the wildlife culture situated in the heart of Maputo to draw inspiration, creating palpable designs that define the love between humanity and wildlife. The brand uses cotton and linen to make silky natural prints. The brand imperatively takes advantage of the abundant cotton reserve in Mozambique to make its beautiful designs.
Their print designs mimic wildlife characters, as some are in printed giraffe and tiger skins. Notable collections were made from these prints such as the Lotus Collection. The collection was made up of classic kimonos with a soft traditional touch. Their other endeavor is into ready-to-wear skirts and crop-tops made from fine linen.
Like many other African fashion brands, Cuccla is bent on creating eco-friendly fashion that respects our planet through recycling.

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.
