My Glitz Africa Fashion Week Experience

yaa somuah

I finally popped my event coverage cherry.. whoop! whoop! Glitz Africa Fashion Week officially became the first event I ever covered press for as a blogger. I must admit it was quite intimidating, especially the first day at the Haute Avant Garde Party. Let me start off by saying, I can be the shy type or is it that I feel myself just a little too much sometimes ( I dunno)  sooo walking up to people and asking if I could take a photo of them and telling them about my blog was a little difficult. Anyway I survived that, took a few shots and left very early, well cause my day job doesn’t give me the luxury of staying up that late during weekdays.

Now the main event, day 1 of fashion week was very exciting. Guess what? I got to sit front row! Lucky me right? I saw familiar faces or should I say Ghanaian celebrities. I had to keep my cool and not act like some groupie chick. All in all day 1 was well organized,  singer Adina Thembi put on a good show. The designers also did a great job with their lovely runway pieces. My favorite had to be Deborah Vanessa’s collection. She had some very risque pieces, which I loved.

My second favorite was emerging Nigerian designer Ejiro Amos Tafiri, her collection was so divine with a touch of class.

Day 2, the turnout for day 2 was much more than the first and well I didn’t get to sit in front this time. But it was as equally exciting and entertaining as day 1. Singer Nana Yaa treated us to a soulful performance. Design label, House of Nwocha won my heart for the night.

I met some lovely people too, one of such people was fellow blogger Adjeley of trendsandblends.blogspot.com

yaa somuahGenerally, the Glitz Africa Fashion Week team did a wonderful job, putting up an event of this caliber is definitely not a walk in the park. Kudos to them. It is very evident that the Ghanaian fashion industry needs more events like this one to showcase the amazing talent Africa/Ghana has to offer.
