ACCRA‘s got serious style. Folks here love to look good but they keep it low and undercover. But it’s about to get hi-def.
This was more than apparent at the first-ever Ghana Fashion + Design Week held at the Movenpick Ambassador Hotel over the weekend. The affair brought some of the coolest young designers to strut their stuff on the catwalk including our favorites – Duaba Serwa (Ghana), Sarah Duah (Ghana/Germany), Orange Culture (Nigeria), Coccolily (Ghana/Canada) and Christie Brown (UK/Ghana). These style stars have some bright destinies ahead. Can’t wait to see what they cook up next.
In the meantime and in-between time, peruse through this garden of images. We thought these cool kids had fashion worth stopping to take a picture for. We also decided to do something fun while waiting two hours for the show to finally start. Gotta love our people.
Tune in tomorrow to see photos from the catwalk.
If you like what you see here, then we are fam. Send us photos of your street style game to firstname.lastname@example.org and share the inspiration.
