Legon Fashion Week Coming Soon

Legon Fashion Week (LFW) is an annual convocation of experienced and upcoming fashion designers, legends and aspiring models and fashion brands from the textiles, make-up, and hair and clothing industry to inspire new ideas and sell brands.

New ideas from both the young and old have been splashed into the Ghanaian fashion industry recently. This reveals the urgency to create a platform which can bring together these ideas for better synchronization and opportunity to learn for a larger future fashion world.

The greatest way to get a good market for exquisite brands is to bring together lovers of the brand to a spot for a better appreciation of what the brand has to offer. LFW is geared towards bringing lovers of fashion to a one-stop-shop fashion extravaganza to buy and have fun.

The LFW is a whole week’s event from the 8th to 12th of October, 2012, expected to reach over 7000 or more audience and will be characterized by various activities including:

Exhibition starts from Monday 8th October to Sunday 14th October at the forecourt of Mensah Sarbah Hall, University of Ghana, Legon from 10am to 10pm each day.

Event organizers have attempted to come up with our very own Fashion 101 show which will seek to analyze today’s fashion trends and give relevant information to students about the dos and don’ts in today’s fashion world.

It will involve celebrities who will share with the student populace personal tales about their experiences in the fashion world. This is a fun show that’s expected to generate a lot of humor as well as student interaction.

Two educative seminars are expected to be held during the week. There will be the “Models’ Lounge” and the “Fashion Sense Seminars” which will be hosted by our partner model agency and a fashion house which will express interest in this event.

The fashion show will be staged for models to showcase the handiworks of the various fashion designers, bead makers and shoe makers who will participate in this event. It will be a fashion festival full of glamour, glitz and music.

20 designers are expected to showcase their creativity and ingenuity. 10 will be experienced and well-known designers both from Ghana and abroad. 10 designers will be young and upcoming cloth designers who show promise through their hard work and innovations.

Jewellery makers and shoe makers will also showcase their fashion accessories, amazing shoes and jewellery.

The show is opened to every fashion designer, jewellery makers, shoe makers, fashion accessories and other fashion artistes.
