As the main objective of our institution is to enhance the talents and skills of students, we push our students to always pursue excellence in all they do and this has incited the interest of the organizers of the Accra Fashion Week 2017 who have chosen RIOHS / students to open its October event called “Summer / Harmattan 2017”. This event would be held at the new Providence Events Center opp. La Palm Royal Hotel, near Trade Fair on the 5th of October 2017 from 6pm to 8:00pm.
Accra Fashion Week as we know is the prime resource for fashion news and information in Africa. With its maiden event in 2016, Accra Fashion Week has managed to maintain the interests of not only fashion designers but the public at large with its worldwide creativity and largest compilation of foreign designers to showcase in a country for a single event. This year’s event is to celebrate 60years of independence and style in Ghana while featuring over 30 designers including our students. This we deem a great honour for such an opportunity to expand our students’ relationship with fashion buyers and showcase their unique designs.
With our school’s belief in confidence building in students; enhancing creativity and visual arts through open learning; encouraging students to think in open space and supporting / promoting our students, it is no surprise that we are to open this event.
