> Today, I am proud of fellow blogger Nana Darkoa who, together with her sister Abena, has creted a clothing line: Maksi. Right now the she is featured on Tv3 saying
“fashion is part of life”
“tonight, amazing models will be walking a catwalk specially built over a swimming pool.”
Indeed, 7PM tonight a fashion show is taking off at the classy African Regent Hotel. I’ve seen a sneak peak of some of the clothes on Facebook and they look young and fun with a local flare.
I think this initiative is part of something bigger, something inherently Ghanaian – entrepreneurship. Most Ghanaians I know (!) has a company on the side of their regular job. Many of them dream about one day doing it full time, but understand you have to start small. Many of them are excellent sales people who cater to the needs of their country. It is very inspiring and exciting!
Maksi Clothing might be an especially professional venture with a big launch with hired models, good photography and copy writing, but it is definitely part of a much wider trend of Ghanaian entrepreneurship.Sharing is caring!
