These days, people express their sense of style through smartphones and smartwatches when taking pictures in their best outfits, whether in front of a mirror, at glittering events, memorable moments or on the red carpet. Clearly, technology has become an inseparable part of fashion, beyond the soft and hardware.

So it’s no surprise that at this year’s Glitz Africa Fashion Week, Ghana’s biggest annual fashion and lifestyle event, Samsung will showcase its most avant-garde innovations on the runway, including the Galaxy Z Fold2 and Galaxy S20 Fan Edition.
