Ghana’s Shining Star
“It’s a new era in fashion – there are no rules. It’s all about the individual and personal style, wearing high-end, low-end, classic labels, and up-and-coming designers all together”
--- Alexander McQueen
A new star is shining brilliantly in the world of fashion. Ghanaian designer Felix Anaman showcased his fabulous 2012 Spring/Summer Clothing Collection during last years BK Fashion Week event in New York City. The successful and talented Anaman provided fashion enthusiasts with a range of African print fabrics that are fresh, elegant, vibrant, colorful and unique with his own Ghanaian flare.
Breaking into an industry that employs thousands of people and generates billions of dollars worldwide is an overwhelming challenge for anyone.
But that’s exactly what makes Anaman’s journey so interesting. His passion and love of fashion has resulted in the development and creation of the “Felix Anaman Clothing “ label.
He is one of a number of Ghanaian designers striving to get worldwide recognition and acceptance for an industry that is still growing in his native country. Ghanaian fashion experts and other industry professionals hope to take another giant step forward when they launch the 2012 Ghana Fashion and Design Week scheduled for August 23rd – 25th in Accra, Ghana.
