Hon. Samia Nkrumah looking elegant -talking to the market women of Tema East, Accra Ghana, on her campaign trail last year.
The thing is…. we Ghanaians are missing an opportunity to up our game. I’m sure she uses a designer or seamstress in Ghana –so why don’t we know about them?
Hon. Samia Nkrumah wears tradition wax print cloths, –which of Ghana’s textile mills is designing and printing them??
With the invention of the internet (the best global shop front window for any business) –everything, especially the multi billion pounds fashion industry matters, –and Hon. Samia Nkrumah’s Ghanaian designer(s) or textile supplier(s) –think Michelle Obama and what she is doing for the American fashion industry, -could and should be benefitting Ghana!!!!
As Ghana’s remaining textile mills start to up-their-game, –they need to work with upcoming fashion designers –and dress the few known female Ambassadors of Ghana –and bring much needed attention to Ghana’s budding fashion industry.
Ghana based designers and Ghanaian textile mills should be clambering over themselves to get the ever elegant Hon. Samia Nkrumah, the daughter of Dr Kwame Nkrumah, - Ghana’s first President to wear their designs or wax print cloths.
