12 pm in Kantamanto by Cymple

Published

on

Prior to the announcement of “12 pm in Kantamanto” on 7th March 2019 was the buzz on social media of tweets and photos of Cymple, the stylist, posing on the streets of Accra with the theme “SAD”.

“SAD” became a concept one Saturday when the popular stylist, Cymple, roamed the streets of Kantamanto, the fashion hub in Ghana, observing the movements and activities of people in town.

Kantamanto is a daily busy flea market filled with brand new clothes and shoes, store rejects and second-hand outfits where most Ghanaians shop at lower prices. Out there under the scorching sun, he saw people in his field transport clothes or bolts of fabric on their heads and on trolleys, sellers calling out to customers, some shoving Artifacts in the faces of customers, others pulling their customers into their stalls or shops or table tops, etc. He got the inspiration of working on a collection with everything bought from Kantamanto when he came across the tailors who carry their machines around and those who iron clothes in town, among others who did this to earn a living. In his eyes, it was a sad experience but from interacting with these people, he found out they were happy despite the daily hustle to get people clothes to wear, filling their pockets with some money to feed themselves and their families. “SAD” in his perspective, is beautiful in a weird way. 12 pm in Kantamanto is a runway fashion show put together by Cymple, and a few street brands in Ghana, such as Wae Originals, Tribe of God, Free the Youth and Vigi Force, to promote street fashion in Ghana and acknowledge the hard work of the men and women selling in Kantamanto. It is basically a display of street content. The fashion show comes off on 30th March 2019 at the Moni3 studios-Haatso at 6 pm with tickets going for 20cedis. Come through and let us support street fashion in Ghana.
