ARISE Fashion Week returned on Friday December 11 but not without some noteworthy changes. The continent’s most prominent fashion show has had to adapt amid the coronavirus pandemic by going virtual and streaming to a global audience across multiple platforms.

Kicking off the show with 20 designers showcasing in 4 batches of 5 designers each, designers and their models shuttled from an hotel for the shows following a carefully planned COVID compliant transit schedule.

Day 1 started with a stunning exhibition by Onalaja and ran to Wuman‘s graphic presentation. Fashion gives us fantasy, dreams and hope — themes that ran through the collections of the contestants of Arise 30 under 30.

Africa’s biggest stars such as WizkidWurld, Wavy the creator and The Cavemen were also part of the fashion frenzy, spiking the evening with stellar performances.

Travis Obeng-Casper is a Ghanaian fashion designer, stylist and Creative Director of a contemporary Ghanaian unisex brand AJABENG, which he founded in 2018 while still in fashion school. Inspired by his mother’s eclectic retro fashion sense and his keen interest in the world of design, Travis is a self-styled and life-long student of design.
