AYO A MODEL AGENCY
Who we are: Ayo A is a home for fashion and editorial models. It is a Kumasi based modeling agency which deals mostly with the creative minds in fashion. We seek to organize major fashion events for young designers in and outside Kumasi. We are located on the campus of the Kwame Nkrumah University of Science and Technology.
How we started: We held a model casting at the beginning of the year and the turnout was amazing, therefore we decided to train the models we had for our first fashion show that took place in February last year.
What we have done: Ayo A Models Gh organized the first ever KNUST fashion weekend last year on Campus which saw amazing works from young designers like Sarah Christian, Imo, kwekuoutluk and many others. Also gracing the runway were designs from young celebrated Ghanaian couture designer, Afri-Ken Novelty.
Models from Ayo A also modeled in Charity fashion show organized by the Medical students of the Okomfo Anokye Teaching Hospital. Amazingly, Ayo A models were solely used for the Da viva fashion show in Golden Tulip in Kumasi, which climaxed their national fashion workshop held May this year. Other things the Agency has been involved in are ad campaigns for Kwekuoutluk, Exube Couture.
The year’s event is designed to showcase the collections of various fashion designers in and out of campus. It will be a platform for the designers here in Kumasi to showcase their spectacular designs in a major fashion show. Prior to the main event, there will be sales of many fashion items and also two days fashion and entrepreneurship seminar for students and designers which will be climaxed with the fashion shows.
This year’s event begins on the 13th-16th of February 2013, hopefully to be held at various locations on the KNUST campus. This year’s fashion week is in conjunction with the Textiles Students Association and fashionghana.com.
