Guinée Fashion Fest presents Ast-Design by Ahmed Sékou Touré


Manager of AST-Design

Creative, intuitive, curious and passionate. Everything about our designer is an opportunity to excel.

AST, whose real name is Ahmed Sékou Touré, is a young man who has been making a name for himself in the Guinean fashion world for several years now. With a style that is both simple and elegant, he makes his mark with a desire to dazzle, seduce, or simply make you unique on every occasion.

Born in N’zérékoré, on the southern fringes of Guinea, AST‘s appointment with fashion was a long time coming. AST is one of those young people who have always loved to dress elegantly. It was this love of clothing and a pronounced taste for perfection that prompted his need to become a designer.

Yet, despite this background, AST was predestined for soccer. An amateur defensive player – from which he got the nickname « Gada« , in recognition of his imposing build and extraordinary strength – his disillusionment with the profession was the result of a lack of means to pursue his studies at a professional academy.

After his soccer adventure in Ghana in 2014, he took advantage of his return to devote himself to the fashion business, which has been a passion of his since early childhood.

Orphaned from both parents at a very early age, everything about AST is reminiscent of resilience and the will to succeed.
The spotlight he now enjoys is exhilarating proof that nothing is lost with a valiant heart. It’s the result of a relentless struggle.

In 2022, he officially launched his in-house brand AST-Design, which has gone from strength to strength. Since then, he has been in demand at a number of fashion events and catwalks in Guinea.

He has taken part in
TikTok evening, February 24, 2024 (Guinea);
Nimba fashion week, November 25, 2023 (Guinea);
Panaf festival panafricain, November 04, 2023 (Belgium).
