Contestants of the maiden edition of Ahomka Fashion Week Celebration (AFWC) have visited Amansan Television (ATV) in Accra as part of familiarization tour.
Thirteen (13) contestants in all will be fighting for the covetous prize for the event which commences from 23rd May, 2022 to 27th May 27 at Ahomka Fie in Elmina where the winner will be crowned.
In an interview with ATV the organizers of the show bemoaned the infiltration of Western culture into the country.
According to them, it was as a result of that, that the idea of promoting the true Ghanaian fashion was conceived.
One of the organisers, Akosua Konadu said, the idea behind the event which will be held annually is to discourage people from patronizing foreign cultures.
Uncle Ato who is also part of the organizing committee advised fashion designers to use their time wisely.
The Ahomka Fashion Week Celebration is the brain child of Ahomka FM and Ocean 1 , all in Elmina in the Central region. The idea was conceived by the President of Groupe Nduom, Dr Papa Kwesi Nduom.
The organisers used the opportunity to thank Dr Nduom for making the show possible.
