Fashion and runway model Emma Djen is set to represent Ghana at the 2020 edition of Miss Earth. Miss Earth is an annual international environmental-themed beauty pageant competition promoting environmental awareness, conservation, and social responsibility. The contest is the third largest beauty pageant in the world in terms of the number of national-level competitions to participate in the world finals.
The 2020 edition will be the 20th edition of the Miss Earth pageant. Miss Earth 2019 Nellys Pimentel of Puerto Rico will crown her successor at the end of the event. The event will be held for the first time with a virtual coronation night on November 29, 2020, due to the pandemic caused by the Coronavirus disease 2019.
The candidates were split into four continental groups: Asia & Oceania, Africa, Americas, and Europe and will then compete in the following categories: Earth Talk, Talent, Beach Wear, Evening Gown, Sports Wear, National Costume, and Interview with Netizens.
52 contestants from various countries and territories have been selected to participate in the Miss Earth 2020 pageant including Ghana.
UPCOMING TOP EVENTS!
Ghana’s leading fashion event Accra Fashion Week is scheduled for 7-11 December 2022 following their 5th-year celebration last year in 2021. Accra Fashion Week is a platform for African designers that can be compared to fashion weeks across the major capitals. 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.
However, rest assured that 2022 is going to be even more exciting with greater performances and an upgraded designer collection. FashionGHANA.com is sure to bring you the exclusives we did on www.FashionGHANA.com/TV. All last year’s shows are available to watch on youtube. Designer’s registration is ongoing on the AccraFashionWeek.org website.
As we embark on another year of celebrating African culture, our theme for 2022 is “Afrofuturism.” This term was created to explore the developing intersection of cultural aesthetic, philosophy of science, and philosophy of history as it relates to the African Diaspora. During this year’s events, Afrochella will bring “Afrofuturism” to life through fashion, food, art and music. In 2019, the African Diaspora returned home to the continent for the “Year of Return.” This year, we will explore the endless possibilities of what “Afrofuturism” could look like in 2022 and beyond.
