BlueCrest School of Fashion & Design students showcase their designs at Ghana Fashion Awards
21st November 2015, World Trade Centre, Accra
From couture gown to ready-to wear dress, the latest fashion by the newest generation of designers at BlueCrest -School of Fashion & Design (SFD) hit the runway on 21st November, 2015 at recently conducted Ghana Fashion Awards by eTV Ghana at World Trade Centre, Accra.
SFD Students have their own distinct personalities and unique styles which were reflecting through their designs. They also took advantage of the latest technologies available to them at SFD to create their accessories, stitch the fabrics and enhance their collections. Students experimented with technology, non-conventional material, colour palettes, silhouettes and fabrics.
Students had worked extremely hard researching, designing and producing the unique collections of outfits. They were advised to bring their designs which were supposed to be inspired from African culture, tradition and symbols. Senior staffs at SFD were appointed as jury to select the best designs. To their surprise every design was so unique in its own way that they had tough time selecting the best 9.
SFD faculties on the other hand were quite thrilled as it was the first runway show for the students. They constantly monitored and motivated the students during the preparations and on the day of show. Almost for a month entire campus was abuzz with energy and high spirit during the preparations for the show. All items, including accessories and footwear too, were designed and fabricated by students on the campus. Not only the designing, some students volunteered to model on runway to display their own colleague’s panerai replica watches collection.
This show provided students with the platform to implement and make best use of what they learned during their class hours.
“We were thrilled to showcase the collective talents of our students to the creative community in Ghana and beyond,” commented Mr. Sushil Rochwani, Campus Head – BlueCrest School of Fashion & Design. “We are proud of our students and staff who have showcased such a wonderful and unique collection”. He also thanked eTV to provide such a wonderful platform to SFD students.
Within the span of just over a year SFD has received an award of “Fastest Growing Fashion & Design School” in Ghana and many accolades from the industry leaders and experts. To recognize institution contribution towards fashion education SFD was also nominated for an award category.
Audience present at the show was stunned by the designs and creations produced by SFD students who are at a nascent stage of learning. Students and staff equally enjoyed the glitz and glamor of the fashion industry. They didn’t only enjoy the show but came out with a stronger determination to be one of THE BEST DESIGNER!!!
