Grace Quaye made headlines as she scooped the title ‘Face of Accra Fashion Week 2016’ circulating her face in both local and international press. Today Grace Quaye covers our ‘Industry Rebels’ issue of FashionGHANA.com Magazine in clothes by Bri Wireduah and FashionGHANA.com. The first cover we have produced in two years.
The front cover, shot by Nana Tamakloe, was inspired by the historical image of Huey P Newton, American freedom fighter and founder of the Black Panther Party, sitting on what is known as a king’s/Queen’s chair. The image was recreated to celebrate Grace Quaye’s reign as a new queen in the modeling world and also to commemorate the 50th anniversary of the Black Panther Party, which was well fitting of the issue ‘Industry Rebels’.
Our covers have always reflected the current state seen fit of the fashion world, mainly in Ghana and Africa. The ‘Industry Rebels’ magnifies the birth of a new generation of fashionista’s that are revolutionizing the traditional forms of Ghanaian fashion circle which has not been able to connect with the general society for years.
With a new wave of designers, models, bloggers, photographers fashionistas and the successful inaugural edition of Accra Fashion Week, it seems there is another future for fashion lovers and fashionistas in Ghana than to confirm to the norm.
