Frankly, sometimes I marvel as to how plus sized ladies we have in Nigeria are so timid and very shy to show what God has given to them on a platter. I think they should emulate from their Ghanaian counterparts.
Accra Fashion Week S/H17 may be over, but the buzz is still not over in the city. From draped couture to summery casuals to lavish mens suits to hard rock cultural styles. With so much to keep people talking and hashtagging forever, or until the next season C/R18 (Chilly Rainy 2018).
However, what has gone viral beyond Ghana itself is not just the fabulous swimwear event, but specifically Nina Sharae’s expo on the historical fashion week in Ghana. Yes we have seen the plus size, and yes we have seen the swimwear, but it seems Ghana as a nation was not ready for plus size and swimwear, leaving Nina Sharae to open a whole new level of fashion expo to the African nation stirring up much debate and compliments all in one.
The show saw a wide variation of designers from Ghana, Netherlands, Gabon, USA and more. Some brand names were Ghana’s number one Bri Wireduah, Dauvia and Donnakeshley from Netherlands, Nina Sharae herself, Jes La Tov from Gabon, Naa Lamley, Figs Fashion Dejack Clo, Oak Stitches and I slay African.
A highlight of the night was meant to be a performance by none other than Ebony Reigns but it seems the plus size models had stolen the show before then judging by online reaction.
