Founder of Alikoto Clothing, Ama Asantewa Diaka is on a mission to celebrate the distinct cultures of French and Ghanaian fashion with Fashion Fuse.
Fashion Fuse is a show to showcase the rich cultures of Ghana and France and the outcome of the fusion of elements of each of these cultures.
“When Ghana is mentioned, most people from France think primarily of corruption, poverty, national parks and the many good athletes and musicians the country has produced but they hardly have any idea of the modern, creative and inventive Ghana in terms of fashion. But you make mention of France and things like romance, holidays, a well-developed country runs in everyone’s mind”, Ama Asantewa Diaka said.
“One important aim of the fashion show is to promote the understanding between Ghanaians and the French while presenting Africa as an infinitely modern, creative continent beyond music and to show that the media produces an incomplete picture.”
Poets Chief Moomen, Miss Ndabi, Dzyadorm, Namojiobese, Poetra Asantewa and Sandra Huson of Skillions Records will be on hand to entertain the audience with spoken word and music.
Fashion Fuse is in collaboration with Alliance Francaise.
