Did you know that fashion is one of the earliest forms of human expression? Now you know! Basically, fashion is described as a form of self-expression at a given period of time through lifestyle, clothing, hairstyle, accessories, footwear, and body posture among others. On the other hand, fashion bloggers mainly analyze various fashion trends and share their ideas and experiences using written blogs on social media platforms.
In that light, Ghana’s fashion industry has grown rapidly recently. As a country with great riches in diverse traditions and cultures, Ghana is determined to make an impact in the fashion industry as well. The diverse ethnic groups living in this endowed country together with fashion lovers from all over the world have led to the huge growth of the country as a producer and consumer in the fashion industry. Today we feature 20 top Ghanian fashion bloggers who are setting standards in the African fashion industry and beyond.
