The Glitz Africa Fashion Week is an annual event where African fashion is put in the spotlight for designers across the continent to showcase their collections to a diverse audience of industry players, fashion enthusiasts and influencers.
Aside the runway shows which characterize the event, the Glitz Africa Fashion Week holds a Business of Fashion seminar, where established fashion designers and industry players interact with emerging and aspiring designers and other persons interested in the industry about matters arising in the business of fashion as well as the future focus of the industry.
This year, Access Bank is coming on board to enrich the Business of Fashion experience with its expert knowledge in managing one’s finances in order to sustain one’s business despite the fluctuating nature of the economy. Fashion is a booming industry globally which has been growing steadily in Ghana over the past couple of years. It offers a vast range of job opportunities along the value chain and it is imperative to inform the next generation of fashion designers and industry players of the direction fashion is taking the country, the continent and the world in general.
Access Bank Ghana is on a mission of setting standards for sustainable business practices that unleash the talents, deliver superior value to its customers and provide innovative solutions for the markets and communities it serves. This is why Glitz Africa is collaborating with Access Bank to educate the fashion community about adopting sustainable practices to ensure the growth of their businesses regardless of the scale.
The 6th annual Glitz Africa Fashion Week takes place from 18th October to 21st October, 2018 with the theme, ‘Projecting African culture through design’ at the Kempinski Hotel Gold Coast City Accra.
