Ghana Fashion & Design Week for Spring/Summer 2013 collections had so many cool designers that we couldn’t’ fit it all in one story. So here’s the rest of our list of designers that we love!

 

Day two of the Ghana Fashion & Design Week began with shows from Brigitte Merki (Ghana), Mina Evans (Ghana), Alali Boutique (Nigeria), 1981 (Italy) and Coccolily (Canada). With huge attendance by designers, celebrities, fashion press and fashion enthusiasts, the excitement of fashion week was at its peak as this was also the last day of showing for the SS2013 collections. Here is a recap from the shows:

 

 

 

 

BRIGITTE MERKI

 

 

Her collection of long flowy gowns, cute dresses, fancy embellishments and mix of African prints and pastels were enough to wow us and get our energy going at the start of the shows.

ALALI BOUTIQUE

 

Toning down the vibrant colours a bit, this collection was simple yet sophisticated. And it hit the runway with stunning chiffon head gears that made the audience gush.

Overall, the Ghana fashion week was highly successful. The events continued on Sunday with an invite-only Fashion & Champagne Evening and ended on October 8th with a close viewing of designers’ collections at a pop up showroom in Accra.
