Kumasi Fashion Week has quite the story behind it.
Beginning in 2011 as the Kwame Nkrumah University of Science and Technology as the student produced and directed KNUST Fashion Week, the franchise has grown to represent the best of Kumasi fashion. Rebranding to Kumasi Fashion Week as the only logical next step. The franchise has partnered with I-Commerce Events and the Golden Tulip Hotel Kumasi, to host the inaugural edition of the Kumasi Fashion Week from the 4th to 6th of March.
