“Rip The Runway Ghana”, a fashion show to expose upcoming fashion designers has been launched. According to organizers, the event has come to stay and hopefully with the success of the debut show, it shall happen annually. The first show will take place on December 27 at the African Regent Hotel.
It will feature new, young and upcoming designers in Ghana with coverage from both local and international press. The basic idea of the fashion show is to allow upcoming fashion designers to explore their full potential and to branch out of their comfort zone and dare to be creatively diverse. Also, fashion designers who are already in the business and do not have enough exposure and publicity and need to be seen will benefit from this show.
In addition to being a unique opportunity for talented fashion designers, the eventpromises to attract the participation of some of the most creative makeup artists, trend setting hair stylists and stunning runway models. Emmanuella Sagoe, Coordinator forthe event comments:
“The ever beautiful Aya Morrison promises to be there. We are also hoping to have the already established fashion designers to grace this occasion to encourage these young ones to push beyond their limits and be the best. The concept of this show is to create a relaxed environment for fashionistas to enjoy a first-rate runway show and have the opportunity to place orders and interact with the designers. Fashion lovers will be in fashion paradise as they spend a dapper, modernistic and voguish evening at the African Regent Hotel enjoying the latest in fashion design along with cocktails which will be made available at your call.”
Designers or their representatives will be available to take orders on the spot. Boutique and specialty fashion buyers covering the designer to high priced fashion market, fashion representatives, selected VIP’s, socialites and corporate sponsors are also sure to enjoy this experience.
