What we can expect at the “I Wear African” Runway Show
“I will be showing pieces from my latest collection called ‘Tubgedje’ which means ‘Lady’ in the Ewe language spoken in Ghana. However, the clothes in this time inspired collection reflect a girl’s maturity into a woman while still maintaining the essence of being a girl. It’s partly fun and flirty and partly reserved and unspoken.” – Sheila Denanyoh
