Starting out in his teens sketching out daring designs of western clothing and traditional wear in Ghana; Kwame grew up surrounded by a family who were very driven by contemporary education. He received most of his education in Technical studies and Engineering.
In his late teens he made his first journey to Britain to visit and was inspired and enthralled by the sweeping streets of Saville Row teeming with prestigious tailors and when he finally migrated to the UK to settle, he chose a prestigious college on the outskirts of Bloomsbury for his education in Fashion Design and Tailoring.
During his studies, he continued to sew and churned out several pieces which were sold to order as and when he had collated enough to place on sale. Moving into the corporate industry he spent several years designing for the George Clothing line before finally making the decision to set up his own Couture brand.
Initially designing under the acronym KGTKKT which was a youth nickname from peers who were enamoured with his tailoring skill, he eventually decided to push the boundaries to make his brand and name a household item
Kwame Koranteng Bespoke Tailoring is a direct result of that drive and ambition and as time has worn on he has gone from strength to strength.
