Yes, there is so much fun in the city: the nightclubs, the museums, the shopping malls, and the beautiful architectural designs, but in reality, urban life doesn’t have it all. And the city life is actually not for all people. There are those who love to enjoy natural serenity with birds chirping around at dusk. So, you see them running away often to the villages every now and then. If you’re one of those who love village life but find yourself in the city, regular vacations at the countryside will do you so much good.
Meanwhile, if you are also one who has never tasted life in a village, jaw-dropping images from Uganda’s awarding-winning photographer, Walter Keys, will show you what you’re missing out on. His photography, simply, is a testament to the world on the beauty of living in an African village and glorifying African nature.
One striking fact about Walter’s work is how he emulsifies the African female physique within their day to day life life such that a glance at the models in the village setting doesn’t send any perverted thoughts into the mind. Put those models in an afro-urban luxury brand, the photographer has definitely coined the African village experience in his body of work for many years now, bringing out the beauty in Africa so much so it will soon be impossible to find any embarrasment when one claims to come from the village.

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.
