Ghana Fashion & Design Week, is pleased to welcome to its NEW TALENT SPOT™ initiative space, 3 budding new graduate talents; Julia Shika Odamtten (Womenswear), Radiant Jackson (Menswear) and Michael Kofi Owusu (Menswear), from -Radford University College (RUC) in Ghana, selected for their outstanding effort in creative fashion design discipline, having completed their Bachelor of Arts Degree education this year at Radford University College.

The anticipated GFDW 2015 event to be held at the Kempinski Hotel ,Accra, 23 - 25 OCT, will feature the selected Graduates, alongside 2014 elected Graduate Designer Afua Biney, who is currently in development at the space to advance their business development in the industry as they set off to becoming new creative entrepreneurs, fully supported by GFDW under its New Talent Spot™ (NTS) initiative space. 

The Graduates who have been under the carefully managed and capable hands of Mrs. Yvonne Ntiamoah, HOD of the Fashion Design Dept. during their time at RUC, expresses their excitement to be granted the unique opportunity for business development support at the NTS initiative space.

Yvonne Ntiamoah says “ It is truly uplifting to see a new wave of creative talents graduating with the right skills to propel them further in their chosen career, and indeed very exciting to see that all efforts made are gradually yielding fruitful results, as we continue to move forward in creating the next generation of industry savvy fashion designers, equipped with the right knowledge of fashion as a business that can lead to a successful and fulfilling career in Ghana and Africa if approached and guided well”

Whilst Yvonne statements echoes our vision and mission at the New Talent Spot™ initiative space, we also congratulate Papa Oppong, who is amongst the recent fashion graduates at RUC this year, whose creative talent was nurtured under Yvonne Ntiamoah at RUC, earning him the opportunity to be selected to join Macy’s fashion incubator in the USA for an external industry experience beyond Ghana.

The one to spot this year at the NTS initiative space will be Afua Biney’s new eponymous collection and brand, to be launched at the fashion week event. It is truly exciting and encouraging times for ongoing development at GFDW, we look forward to seeing her progress post graduation, and welcoming our new creative talents Julia Naa Shika, Radiant Jackson and Michael Owusu to the NEW TALENT SPOT™ initiative space this year!

We are equally proud and congratulate all the fashion design graduates this year at RUC, all of whose work will be on display at the New Talent Spot™ curated space during GFDW 2015 event (23 - 25 OCT) sponsored by GFDW. We encourage all aspiring creative talents to seek the needed education, skills and know-how to be well equipped for their career journey into the global fashion business industry.
