Strolling Goats in Accra: NIMA pt. 3


first stop – NIMA.

Nima is one of the coolest areas in Accra – and we have the photos to prove it.

What can we say? The place just makes you feel free. We love the chill vibe of Nima and the vibrant social life of the majority Hausa-speaking population, the fly attitude and bright colors of the women, the distinct burst of flavors in Northern Ghanaian cuisine found at many food spots lining the streets and the spectacular finds in the Nima Market.

LOOK SHARP: Accra Street Style



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.
