Best and Worst Dressed at the Ghana Fashion and Design Week 2013.

What does one wear to a fashion show nowadays? That was the question i asked myself as i stood looking at my packed wardrobe on the night of the 2nd day of the

Ghana Fashion and Design Week

. 'Its a Ghanaian fashion show, dammit! Wear something Ghanaian!' I rifled and rifled and eventually ended up wearing blue skinny jeans, red tee with a distressed sleeveless jacket and accessorised with my handmade

African print earrings

and a print pocket square in my jeans jacket! I was there to shoot not strut so I had to dress appropriately. Sorry no photo. :) 

I was sure i would be seeing trendy African fashion and was really looking forward to see what guests to the show would be showing off for the event. In the end, i was slightly disappointed at the many few who rocked African fashion but the few who did, either made me raise an eyebrow or give a thumbs up in appreciation. You can vote on who you think is the best or the worst. I will tell you mine.

Simple and Elegant. Leather combined with chiffon fabric. 

Bold African Fabric cropped top. 

Beautiful bold patterned African print. I liked it until.........

African print cropped top and print skirt.

It was common to see cropped tops amongst some guests at the event. Would you ever wear a cropped top? Not on the streets of Accra i am sure. :)

Now thats a slash and burn jeans! 

I like the vim this guy has in his suspenders and print shirt! 

Bold African Print patterned strapless dress. (Check out the shoes facing the dress)

I was blown away by the intricate beaded necklace on this lady. Fabulous. 

It was actually a mix of Western and Ghanaian fashion in all. I had hoped to see more of our local print after all its a Ghanaian Fashion Week!
