The creative’s paradise, the artist’s haven. The Wax Print Festival was everything and so much more. Art exhibitions, runway shows, the progressive conversations, the music, the food! Here’s a checklist of what you missed at the maiden edition of The Wax Print Festival.

“The Wax print film was AH-MAZING! !
Our Location was fire!
A display of fashion through time with Maame Agyei
African fashion to the world!

From the Heart of Bonwire, we present the art, Kente
If you’ve never seen our precious Kente cloth being woven, the Wax Print Festival was the time to do so. Intricately woven threads and patterns, form the base of what Kente is today. The technique has not changed and the question is will there always be someone to pick up the weave?
Ghana's top fashion brands, artisans in one spot
The Wax Print Festival had a number of talented fashion houses, artisans, and home-grown ghanaian businesses that showcased mind-blowing creativity!
What is the future of the African Wax Print?
The 3-day festival had The Afropole founder, Amma Aboagye lead conversations about fashion, identity and defining the future of Wax Print for ourselves. We asked the questions that needed to be asked. What is the authenticity of wax print and where does it go from there? We had gems dropped from Afua Osei, from She Leads Africa, Paul Akrofie from RCP Clothing, @k_kwabs, Business Development Manager for @appolonia_gh, Steve Badu from GTP on a panel, you know it’s going to good!

Ain't that the truth?
