This year has thrown a fair few surprises at the world! There is (shock horror) no festivals this year which turned out to be lucky because the trip to produce the new collection in Ghana turned from 2 months into 4! Our original plans of working with renowned Accra photographer @derrick_o_boateng to shoot the new collection had to be postponed because of the lockdown in the city and we had to go full D.I.Y!
Every year, after creating the new Ashanti Empress collection we get the whole team of 35 tailors, apprentice and their families together for a big Ashanti Team excursion! This year we visited Lake Bosumtwe in the Ashanti Region of Ghana and spent the day swimming and enjoying our picnic and the glorious African sunshine!
