The Plaice Event Centre, La, Accra, brought the crème-de-la-crème to an atmosphere caressed with glitz and glamour, simple put, the ambiance on the 24th of November, 2012, was fabulous; it was the night were eleven winners went home with their names inscribed on the crystal plated award for hard work, determination and above all, the pat on the back to continue doing what they do best. It was the Ghana Fashion Awards 2012.
It was a night brilliantly organized as audience were thrilled to great performances by AJ Nelson and the veteran Nii Obi Addo who showed his prowess on the live band. The MC for the night was the ravishing Queenie Obeng. There was plenty to eat, drink and souvenirs to take home.
I am of the school of thought which says that once you are a nominee, you are a potential winner, though one person has to take the gong home. Congratulations to all the nominees and winners on the night. Below are the winners in the various categories they won:
