Anyway I’m beyond excited about GFDW!!! Ghana really needs its own professional fashion week and shows that have invited buyers -because otherwise, what is the point?

Below is the latest schedule from Ghana Fashion & Design Week… This professional outfit has dedicated the 8th -9th October 2012 to buyers -Amen.

The said two days have been elegantly set up as an open day for international and local buyers to view [up close] and purchase the catwalk collections at chichi Viva Boutique located in Osu, Accra.  -Thus GFDW promises to go where other fashion weeks in Ghana have never tread before, -to bring real business to all those designers and fashion houses taking part -and that’s how the likes of LFW, NYFW operate, and why can’t we!!!!
