Title: Stylist Dorothy Maathay-Osei (Dee) up for a BEFFTA
The Black Entertainment Film Fashion Television and Arts (BEFFTA) Awards is one of the respected honour regimes in the United Kingdom and Ghanaian stylist, Dorothy Maathay-Osei, popularly known as Dee, is hoping to join the ranks of its honourees this year.
She has been nominated in the Best Wardrobe Stylist category for 2013.
The BEFFTA award was founded by Pauline Long. It is celebrating five years of honouring and celebrating musicians, comedians, actors, actresses, DJs, models, fashion designers, stylists, film directors, music producers, authors, dancers, choreographers, promoters, TV presenters, radio personalities and radio stations among others.
This year’s awards ceremony will be a two-day affair on October 25 and October 26 in the UK. “I am so humbled by this nomination. It is not easy to be recognised in the fashion industry and for it to be in London, a place I wasn’t born, makes it special for me,” Dee says.
She thinks it is her devoted and elegant approach to styling that has brought her the recognition. “Being humble and hardworking takes you places. Most of my styling work has been for free because I believe in helping new and young designers,” she added….
