Twenty-six year old Nii Adjei Dromo Mensah, dismissed competition from seven others in the reality show to once again project Radford University as a leader in fashion training.
Nana Dwomoh Sarpong, Executive Chairman of Radford University, in his remarks, said the performance of Nii Mensah, and the other competitors, was indicative of the wealth and employment potentials of Ghana’s fashion industry which needed to be explored.
According to him, the fashion industry holds a lot of prospects but requires governmental intervention in the form of protectionist policies to check dumping.
The fashion industry, he said, has the potential of creating jobs, and explained that employment opportunities exist at each stage of the production chain starting from the cotton farmer all the way to the end user.
He commended Multi TV for the innovation which he believed would add to efforts towards promoting the country’s fashion industry.
Nana Sarpong also encouraged corporate institutions and all stakeholders to support the campaign to make the Ghanaian fashion industry competitive and comparable to global standards.
Mrs. Yvonne Ntiamoah, Head of the Fashion Department at Radford, was delighted at the achievement of Nii Dromo Mensah, saying it adds to the success story of the fashion department.
“We have for the third time running, successfully organised the Radford graduates fashion show, a masterpiece of fashion excellence that has become a permanent feature on the country’s fashion calendar,” she said.
For his part, Nii Dromo Mensah said he plans to establish “a fashion house after my course, to help deepen the understanding and appreciation of fashion. Fashion is integral to our customs, tradition and heritage.”
