Master of African designs

Well before the world flocked to African prints, there was Kofi Ansah. Before young
African designers paraded their brands on Vlisco’s runway, there was Kofi Ansah, the master of contemporary African designs.

With over 2 decades of experience working with reputable designers like Guy Laroche, Kofi returned to his home country, Ghana, and introduced a versatile way to treat African cloth. His designs were a complete departure from the traditional styles and even appealed to the African man. With tailored precision, he has dressed the creme de la creme of Ghana’s elite, and  revolutionized how Africans viewed how to use their colourful Ankara print.
