In anticipation of Ghana Fashion & Design Week (GFDW), organisers have collaborated with photographer Kyoko Munakata and London-based Ghanaian designer, Beatrice Korlekie Newman for a promotion campaign titled, “licorice”. Featuring Ghanaian models Soraya Akua Khalil and Phyllis Tekyi-Berto as the two protagonists,  Director, Daryl Rita Osekreh , creates an atmosphere masked by dim lights which the models warm up with their illuminating ebony skins. The sophisticated contemporary silhouettes of Korlekie‘s  add sweetness  to the dark atmosphere; exploring the appeal of bitter/sweet flavour of the licorice plant.

Check on it!

Ghana Fashion & Design Week is a contemporary international platform envisioned to direct, lead and promotes both emerging and established designers to a global audience. This year, Vogue Italia will be the international media partner for the upcoming event scheduled for the 5th -7th October 2012 at the Moevenpick Ambassador hotel in Accra, Ghana.

      Woow this is waaaay overdue, A new day a New dawn with Ghana’s fashion industry. Ghana has suffered its fair share of a shady industry, its about time they take control of their industry, as a Nigerian studying in Ghana I will not miss it for anyone. The venue and the shoot alone tells me this is not your average Ghananaian show….Bella I hope you can cover this for us to see this show

      the hair is too loud,takes away from the aesthetic of the collection,one would think they were selling hair. a simple high ponytail would do
