It’s a new year, new resolutions and plans ahead. The year 2017 will all too soon come to an end, but the moral lessons will not be forgotten.
Kicking off 2017 is the first model issue (NEST VOGUE ) of Debonair Afrik which sparks a spotlight on emerging models in the Ghanaian fashion industry and reflects on challenges conservative stereotypes in fashion and art.
Over the years, what was called beauty in the fashion industry has evolved as designers define the beauty of their models considering the campaign at hand.
Modelling today has transcended beyond the spotlight and fancy clothes, thus the fact top fashion brands in the world now are owned by these same people the world claims they hate.
The fashion industry is a struggle that deserves consistency in delivery and personality to survive especially in the little part of west Africa Ghana, where less attention is paid to the fashion industry yet leaders preach on art and culture. Whereas the Ghanaian economy is influencing 60% of their incompetency to the Struggling fashion and art industry in Ghana.
Sometimes designs are meant to sit alongside other designs that have been mass-produced, to provoke thought and spark ideas around gender, identity, the industry and sexuality so not all designs are wearable.
The media stereotypical comments about people working in the fashion industry as savages, gays and cruel .at any point in a career, one meet up with that person who will either help them to succeed.
The capability work under pressure is a key element working as a model. It could more tiring than luxury during fashion weeks. Flying for castings, show appointments, backstage and production pressure.This must be a thing any model should familiarise themselves with and know how to manage them.Then one can also talk about what these models do to stay up in the business.
