On Saturday 11th April, 2015, Vlisco Ghana concluded the third annual Vlisco Women`s Month campaign with a star-studded award ceremony and fashion show in Accra, where Elizabeth Akua-Nyarko Patterson was announced as the 2015 Vlisco Ambassador.
The Award Night which was held at Labadi Beach Hotel, featured performances from singing sensation Gena West and multiple award-winning neo-soul vocalist Efya as well as the funky sounds of the Afro Maestro Orchestra. The young and talented singer Maame Esi and Heroes Dance Group also gave great performances at the show.
The fashion show was based on the colourful new Vlisco collection ‘Feel’, with a vibrant and inspiring collection from six talented Ghanaian designers including Adwoa Yeboah Designs, Alikoto Clothing, Kofi Gyedu, Ameyo, Kwabena Klassics and Royal Dennis.
Constance Mensah of fashion Label EfuaStanzz was announced as the winner of the Vlisco Fashion Fund contest which serves as a platform for young and talented up-and-coming designers to showcase their creative abilities and supports them in living their dreams as fashion designers.
On winning, Elizabeth Akua-Nyarko Patterson, the Founder and Director of the Girls Education Initiative of Ghana, which provides academic and financial support for girls, said: “It`s a profound honour to be associated with the Vlisco brand and carry the torch from my predecessor, Eugenia Tachie-Menson, who performed her role so well. I am incredibly honoured to fill the shoes of such great women. I want to thank everyone who voted for me and I`m looking forward to the year ahead”.
