Emerging fashion designer, Nina Bakers Wood, Chief Executive of Bakers-Wood, has said it is unfortunate that some Ghanaians continue to look down on fashion designers and hold the perception that it is school dropouts who opt for the fashion designing profession.

“The perception is still there and when people hear you are a fashion designer, they think it is because you cannot become a medical doctor or a lawyer or an astronaut; and this is unfortunate because fashion designing is very big business and not a last resort for school dropouts,” Nina told NEWS-ONE.

 
She said “fashion designing is a creative sector and it takes people who can think on their feet in a very creative way to enter into it.”

“There is no set of professionals who do not wear clothes. Who would design the clothes if we all decide to become medical doctors or lawyers?” Nina quipped in this interview that touched on her brand and the fact that she has been ranked Among Top 7 Emerging African Designers.

The name is Bakers-Woode. We are into fashion retail. Though we do a few stuffs for men, I like to focus more on women. We have been working for some three years now and we have had some successes and recognition. For instance in July 2013, the Vogue international magazine did a whole feature on us as a fashion brand from Ghana. We put Ghana out there. We have also been featured on international news channel, CNN, for being among the top 7 emerging African designers in same year. We are a success story so far.
