It was a breath taking fashion show from Kwame Koranteng, the Ghanaian born designer, showing his latest collection, appropriately in time for the holiday season, entitled the Savannah collection. The show took place at the prestigious Tiger restaurant in the heart of London’s West End.
Kwame is an award-winning fashion legend in his own right enjoying his inaugural 7th anniversary show. Alfie Carreira (pictured below), the headlining top model and singer, took the runway by storm followed by models in brilliant tailored couture garments in an Afro-Western fusion style.
Kwame did not spare when it came to quality of the garments and high production values: It was all top class.
With A-listers on stage and off stage such as the former Miss Ghana 2018, Miss Akua Ohenewaa , modelling the Savannah collection and Singer Adelaide Mackenzie, who sang with Amy Winehouse and gave a tearfully moving performance. Rapper MorDan and Boy Nash provided high energy dance and entertainment.
The staging of the runway was mesmerising; thanks to masterful fashion choreography. At the interval, guests were treated to culinary delights and nibbles while networking with the amazing people present including the international model Aramatou Toure (winner of Top Model Season 9) and TV presenter Ashley Conrad of Video Blog and Shedzi of Yanga TV.
