From Ghana to the world's catwalks 4 October 2013 Last updated at 19:19 BST
It has been a good year for the African fashion industry, with successful shows putting African designs in the spotlight in cities such as London and New York.
Back on the continent, many fashion designers hope to take their labels to catwalks around the world.
One of them is Mabel Simpson, whose "Made-in-Ghana" accessories are sold in the US, Australia, Nigeria and South Africa.
Paulina says: So pleased to see Ghana based fashion accessories label MSimps’ founder Mabel Simpson featured on the BBC. She was eloquent and to the point, helping not just to put her own brand on the map but also Ghana’s growing fashion industry. I wish her the best. Anyway, Ms Simpson told the BBC her story via a film at: http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/world-africa-24406172
