Exopa Model Agency International has left nothing to chance in order to ensure that this year’s Ghana Fashion Weekend turns heads in the fashion world. This year, joining the numerous fashion designers from Ghana and across Africa would be Ghanaian-German Hollywood actor, Boris Kodjoe. The ‘Soul Food’ star will get the chance to showcase his Ziami clothing line to Ghanaians for the first time and also use the opportunity to find out more about his father’s home country.
As part of a special BET feature on Boris Kodjoe, the network will also be in Ghana to trace his Ghanaian heritage as well as to cover the Ghana Fashion Week. Boris is excited about taking part in the fashion week and returning home with such huge attention on him. An exclusive welcome party will be held in his honor and, in a video message, Boris welcomes everyone in the world of fashion to the Ghana Fashion Week.
The 4-day event will be a blend of Modelling Shows and Fashion Exhibitions, which will run concurrently at the Accra International Conference Center from July 1st – 4th, 2009. Ghana Fashion Weekend will be held under the auspices of the ministries of Tourism and Trade and Industry, under the theme: “Harnessing Creative Talents within Africa”. The fashion show is expected to bring together different designers from within Africa, Europe and America. It is aimed at giving exposure to unknown fashion designers as well as giving the creative industry a chance to showcase their works in a form of exhibition.
Ibrahim Sima, Chief Executive Officer of Exopa Model Agency, says the event promises to deliver color, style, glamour and splendour. He says that it would feature 30 designers from all over the world and 100 Exopa Models, 40 of which would come from Germany, UK, France, Venezuela and the United States.
