Former winners such as Grace Quaye have also worked with foreign brands such as Jean Paul Gaultier, Off White, Alexandre McQueen, and more.
The competition has run for 6 years discovering its 6th winner in 2022. However, the competition took a turn this year. Alternating it’s approach from allowing any aspiring model to enter, the organizer hand-picked and scouted 15 potential models which then went through intense catwalk training. After trials and tribulations, this was then filtered down to the top 6 contestants who also got the chance to walk during Accra Fashion Week.
Amongst the 6 finalists, one girl emerged as the winner, and she goes by the name Carol Zinsu. Carol had always dreamed to walk the runways of Accra Fashion Week and prove herself to the international market. The 22-year-old is a professional typist based in Accra and has been modeling for roughly 3 years now. View her competition below…
