Glitz Africa Magazine, a Ghanaian owned celebrity/lifestyle magazine that embraces fashion and celebrates fashion designers across Africa especially in Ghana, has announced that its first Fashion Week will hold in Accra from August 17- 19, 2012.
The Glitz Africa Fashion Week is tailored to provide the platform for Africa’s Fashion industry to showcase its talents, network, celebrate each other and expose them to unexplored markets. It will be an international 3-day event at the Accra International Conference Centre on the 17th, 18th and 19th of August 2012.
The team will select from a list of top designers of African origin from Ghana, United Kingdom, United States of America and the entire African continent to showcase at 1 venue with 10 fashion shows in 3 days, 40 international models, Seminars/Exhibition and International press.
The Publisher of Glitz Africa Magazine, Claudia Lumor shared her reason for this concept, ‘one of the biggest and the fastest growing industries in the world is the fashion industry. This is because of the emergence of daring and dynamic young talents who are not shy to push the boundaries of creativity in the industry. The Fashion Industry needs various platforms like fashion weeks to sustain its rate of growth and for various brands to leverage and draw synergy from the glitz and glamour to promote themselves’.
The Glitz Africa Fashion week promises an unequalled opportunity for various brands to draw parallel with their targets.
We look forward to having a unique experience come August**
