For over a decade, Patrick Poku Asante has been producing dynamic, trend-setting garments of quality.
His brand, House of Eccentric Clothing lives in the minds of fashionistas not only in Ghana, but across the African continent.
Patrick Asante is regarded as one of the very best and innovative African fashion designers. He is extremely talented and has developed effective skills overtime. As a teenager, Patrick modeled until he decided to embark on his passion driven journey as a designer of clothes. While studying at Takoradi Polytechnic, Patrick got his first job working for the Miss Ghana pageantry; he served as a secretary. He also gained experience at Akosombo Textiles Limited (ATL). Patrick later won the Takoradi Best Designer Award organized by Homestyle (a local event management group).
Since then, Patrick has been on top of his game and went on to win Best Fashion Designer 2012 at the Ghana Fashion Awards. Because he excelled in the FIMA 2008 fashion show and applied himself throughout extensive education, Patrick acquired an international job opportunity with French designer Dean Doucet in Nice, France. He trained with him for some months and later returned to Ghana.
In 2003, Patrick Poku Asante established one of Africa’s finest fashion homes, the House of Eccentric Clothing .The House of Eccentric Clothing brand has clothed contestants of elite beauty pageantries, television show hosts, and many other prominent personalities across Africa.
