Do You Crochet?
Crochet is an aspect of fashion designing that many people don’t have a lot of knowledge about. Danish writer, Lis Paludan believes, through her research work, that crochet originated in Arabia and spread eastward to Tibet and westward to Spain, from where it followed the Arab trade routes to other Mediterranean countries.
She also believes that the earliest evidence of crochet came from South America, where a primitive tribe was said to have used crochet adornments in rites of puberty, and that in China, early examples were known of three-dimensional dolls worked in crochet.
Paludan, meanwhile, accepts that there is no convincing evidence as to how old the art of crochet might be or where it came from. It was impossible to find evidence of crochet in Europe before 1800. A great many sources state that crochet has been known as far back as the 1500s in Italy under the name of nun’s work or nun’s lace, where it was worked by nuns for church textiles”.
Ghana Vs. Crochet?
However, the design is now a worldwide fashion commodity and Ghana cannot be exempted from this adornment. Meaning that there is an uprise need for designers to produce for the emerging market for the clothing style.

It aims to fill the void which sees tremendous creativity and culture across the continent with the absence of an operating fashion infrastructure.
The epic event took place at Ghana Dubai in Accra, and saw models march down the steps from the Kwame Nkrumah Monument whilst being followed by a spotlight, before circulating the central fountains. Memories of the exciting night still give chills as guests revisit the experience on youtube.
