What we can expect at the โ€œI Wear Africanโ€ Runway Show

โ€œI will be showing pieces from my latest collection called โ€˜Tubgedjeโ€™ which means โ€˜Ladyโ€™ in the Ewe language spoken in Ghana. However, the clothes in this time-inspired collection reflect a girlโ€™s maturity into a woman while still maintaining the essence of being a girl. Itโ€™s partly fun and flirty and partly reserved and unspoken.โ€ โ€“ Sheila Denanyoh
