At the present time, Ghanaian fashion has gone through a series of drastic change from the 1960s till date .The 60s fashion could be more colourful , forward or laid-back, tailored or relaxed, designer or tie-dyed it was a smorgasbord of styles. It was a time of political and social unrest and nothing portrayed those conflicts more clearly than the fashion. During those days fashion was seen as a social class of perception which especially men took advantage off , meaning one can tell how powerful , rich or poor a person is in the society just by the look on the outside
