    What I like most is that most people owned the look they were going for.

    Why cant you guys just appreciate what people are wearing without any reference to Nigerians? Goes to show that despite the level of development in Ghana, Ghanaians still have some insecurity issues. And by the way, SOME OF THESE PEOPLE ARE NIGERIANS. Go figure!

    • Dolapo

      October 18, 2013 at 11:27 am

      So insecure!! Every time I meet a Ghanaian they always manage to bring up done kind of Ghana vs Nigeria comparison.

    funny we have few or no Ghanaian at the event. most of the
    people here are white/ Nigerians but y’all wanna talk about how
    classy Ghanaian are compared to Nigerians. open your eyes, most of
    the people in the picture are not Ghanaian.

    • Benny

      October 18, 2013 at 7:49 am

      I was at the show and there were 80% Ghanaians, and 20% Nigerians, American, Asians, and French. even the best dressed ones didnt want their pic taken. hands down, Ghana women know better, simple, classy dressig than Naija gals whose whole body and dressing is fake. fake hair, fake nails, eyelash, and on top of it BLEACHING and HORROR MAKE-UP

    • Mom

      October 19, 2013 at 5:50 am

      Okay angry Benny, I was referring to the pictures above not the event. If you hate Nigerians so much why are you on bellanaija? We love you okay. Kisses and hugs.

    • Faith

      October 19, 2013 at 10:27 pm

      BENNY, I THINK I KNOW YOU. DO YOU LIVE IN MAGODO?

    • Aduke

      STOP THIS ALREADY!!! Jeez!! Dont you all get tired with this back n forth??? Haba!

  24. Tolu

    October 18, 2013 at 7:44 am

    We Naija’s are all bleaching…. even men. Ghana women are natural, sweet, sexy, BLACK AFRICANS, not a Micheal Jackson look-alike. I wanna marry a Ghana lady someday…..they are so respectful, dress nice behave so well in the whole of Africa. thats whY I like going to Ghana.

    • mimi

      October 18, 2013 at 9:10 am

      im am nigerian babe and i don’t bleach. stop generalising jor! probably you are so used to seeing bleached girls

    • Tuu

      October 18, 2013 at 9:48 am

      @Tolu,you’ve got to be kidding me.

    • Mz Socially Awkward...

      October 18, 2013 at 10:11 am

      @Tolu, you have some nerve accusing people of being fake when you’re also “Benny” (comment just above yours)? Try again, son, your use of multiple identities automatically deducts all credibility from your statement.

      *returning to the post* Many nice looking people and I love this contra print midi-length dress (on the left) A LOT http://cdn.bellanaija.com/wp-content/uploads/2013/10/2013-Ghana-Fashion-Design-Week-Day-1-October-2013-BellaNaija-Exclusive073.jpg

      And you’ve done your research, and you have data? Where are your stats? Why make a general statement, or an supposed statement of fact for that matter. If you don’t show me figures, or proof, say “I”….SAY “I” bleach. Don’t generalize to the public.
      Cuz, I’m Nigerian, and I don’t

    Quietly lookin for a sweet ghanian man to marry me, *runs away*

    Haba peep this isn’t a competition between Ghana and Nigeria. We should learn to promote W/A and not all these shallow talks about this and that. (It was funny though..lol).
    Truth be told, if the people here are mostly ghananians, then they look really nice. Not over dressed, appropriate for an African fashion week. (Not wearing the latest collection from Burberry for an African Fashion week).
    There definitely were misses like any fashion week all over the world so i don’t know what the issue is here.
    We should learn to celebrate and appreciate our achievements as a continent not knock the hustle.
    One love.
