Reliving Ghanaian Fashion History With Auntie Oboshie

Back in the day, clothing and style was unconventionally representational – wow! I must be a grammar sage… 😆 !! “unconventionally representational” 🙄 .  On Sunday 24th April, one of Ghana’s reputable fashion and style portal Auntie Oboshie, organized a showcase of the emergence of Ghanaian fashion throughout the years.

The event took off at the Accra International Conference Center, showcasing works from fashion brands like KKD’s Omama Creations, Abrantie, Tony Black Couture, Aya Morrison, Doneal, Wear Ghana among others.

It was refreshing to see how fashion has evolved from the perceptive print outfits to today’s wear. Remarkably in the past, it takes some form of prestige to wear certain prints and outfits like the Kente, a full piece Kaba & Slit that exposed no skin except for the arm length, among others. Today, everyone wears anything so there’s no social status dissection in Ghanaian fashion today, on the streets, at funerals, even in our homes.

Thanks to Auntie Oboshie for refreshing our minds on such bracing native essence and bringing together people with liked minds. I’m looking forward to the next event.
