In Ghana, fashion has become the “new thing” ranging from dresses through hairstyles and make up to blend or complement each other. Talking about African prints, we can talk about the kente, dashiki, raffia clothing, lace, gele and material prints etc, which are all trending with different styles or designs sewed to meet an individual’s requirements. Common styles include dresses, kaba & slit, Ankara, casual wears and head gears.
In Ghana for instance, promoting our culture and African brand is one of our priorities, as most firms and institutions acknowledge Africans to be dressed in their various African prints wears especially on weekends which helps promote made in Ghana goods since a lot of these materials are produced in Ghana.
