The first edition of the Ghana Fashion and Design Week will take place this year (exact date still unknown). I think that it is great opportunity for young designers in and outside the continent to present their work.
What I do hope for is that all the time that has gone into planning the said will exemplify it from other numerous fashion weeks and such that are held in the Accra and Kumasi Metropolises.
Ghana Fashion & Design Week (GFDW) is a three-day event set to launch in 2012, the event will epitomize the fashion scene in Ghana with an annual event that celebrates Ghanaian and international designers.
This event will bring creative Ghanaian fashion and accessory designers from around the world, to showcase their collections to local, national and international retail buyers, africa’s neo-fashion consumers, press and fashion savvy celebrities.
The annual event celebration of Ghana’s fashion and creative industry is aimed at educating and developing the industry platform to a worldwide audience.
GFDW 2012 will showcase exquisite on trend collections by designers in Ghana and the Diaspora, alongside international designers, to incorporate outstanding display of Fashion shows and inspirational exhibitions over three days in 2012.
