54 Kingdoms continues to put Pan-African inspired fashion on the global frontier. Three years ago, Ghanaian-born natives, Nana Poku (CEO) and Kwaku Awuah (President) brought 54 Kingdoms to mainstream fashion and every year, the multi-talented duo break new grounds.
In a recent Applause Africa Magazine feature entitled, “Fashion Geeks”, Nana and Kwaku confess their addiction to technology and how it has enhanced the company’s creativity and provided a competitive edge. In 2010, 54 Kingdoms predicted to be the first Pan-African fashion house to own a mobile application and indeed that vision has bear fruition today, as the company launches a mobile app for iOS devices (iPhone, iPad, iPod Touch).
According to the company’s president, “the app is part of building the 54 Kingdoms Kulture”. After several months of working with Yblew, another Ghanaian owned web and application development company, users who download the app can:
• Access exclusive gallery, products shots, and videos
• Create wish lists and purchase products
• Locate 54 Kingdoms vendors
• Connect with, and share 54 Kingdoms on social media platforms (Twitter, Facebook and Vimeo)
• Receive updates of new contents
• Reach out to 54 Kingdoms directly via app contact
• View individual product details
• Get exclusive 54 Kingdoms fashion and styling tips
Over a month ago, the company launched its long awaited Kingdom Come collection during New York Fashion Week at the famous Thompson-Smyth hotel. The event, which attracted over 800 reservations, has been deemed one of a kind by various media outlets and fashion bloggers. All products from the collection are available for purchase through the new 54 Kingdoms App, which can be downloaded via iTunes/App store.
