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.” More Articles You Would Love Hot Shots: Fabulous Fashion Shoot ‘Les Indomptables’ Will Make You Fall In Love With Mali #HOTSHOTS: Kenyan Photographer Thandiwe Muriu Shakes The Net As He Extends His Exquisite 2015 African Print Camo Series “There is no set of professionals who do not wear clothes.
