Being a model in Ghana is tough but Laurie Frempong’s passion urged her on to consider it a career worth pursuing. She hasn’t regretted doing that.
“I’ve been passionate about fashion and modelling for a long time. I knew there were challenges in the industry, but nothing good comes easy. I love what I do, and I know with hard work, we can all make it a well-recognized and respected profession”, the 25-year-old professional Nurse tells enewsgh.com in an interview.
Two years ago, she auditioned to be part of Project Walkway Ghana. She’s been working her way up the ladder of greatness modelling for the likes of Nallem Clothing, Papa Oppong, Afua Biney, Zedi & Cross Alikoto Clothing, and Wusuwa’s Dairy among other fashion and design houses. She’s also taken part in Catwalk for Orphans, RIP The Runway and Legon Fashion week.
“Every shoot and client is different and unique so I make sure I prepare adequately and have a fair idea of what the clients expect. I make sure I pack whatever I would need overnight and psych myself. I don’t always have that luxury though, sometimes I get calls out of the blue and I show up and deliver,” was her response to the question of how she prepares for photo shoots.
She believes there’s a lot more to do; “I’m nowhere near where I need to be. I have a lot of work to do. There’s so much to learn and accomplish. I aspire to be a fashion and social entrepreneur”.
Frempong is a student of Radford University College studying Events and Hospitality. She runs the fashion blog, www.lauriefrempong.blogspot.com.
