On the eve of September 30th, 2021, fGHA award-winning model and entrepreneur Victoria Micheals outdoored the FCA model Bootcamp at its official press launch inside the Alisa Hotel. The model Bootcamp intends to act as a one-stop grooming hub slated for the 22nd and 23rd of October 2021 for Ghanaian-based models that will consist of a host of activities aimed at inspiring models across the continent and equipping them with skills to enhance their careers.
The event will consist of the following…
– Empowering models with skills to generate multiple streams of income.
– Preparing them for global modeling opportunities, cultural shocks, and social diversities
– Tutorials on creating z cards and portfolios
– Photoshoot tips
– Masterclasses on the importance of having the right management, placements, and agency
– Educating models on the importance of pre-auditions and casting preparations
– Capacity building and 360grooming.
At the press launch, Victoria Michaels stressed that the event is on a mission to create ‘ModelPreneurs’ a hyphened word for model entrepreneurs. Another interest of Victoria Michaels as explained is to see the models be able to manifest alternative careers from their modeling experience, so they have further opportunities when the model clock runs dry.
Aim To Create Modelpreneurs
According to Victoria Michaels “There will be ent dialogue by seasoned entrepreneurs, so we would have a panel discussion of entrepreneurs by business leaders who have actually done so much in their craft, speak and interact with models; Tell them things they can do to sort of widen their scope because we believe that information is liberating.
She continued “When they are informed they will now know I can do xyz. There are models who have what it takes to become millionaires but they don’t know how to go about it, now one has told them you can do xyz. Some of them post images on social media but they could actually influence for brands, but how do they attract brands? they need to position themselves strategically. So they need to know if you have this image you will attract a brand. Brands won’t associate with you because of the image you have created for yourself on social media. You need to know how to attract and this is what the Bootcamp will do for the models.”
Other speakers of the night included Deputy Head of Delegation Pieter Smidt, Herman Ofori Macmillan, Gisella (West Africa’s Ambassador for Swarovski) and career and tax advisor Ayesha Bedwei Ibe.
Victoria called on former colleagues and former models whom she now recognizes as modelpreneurs to join her cut the cake as she officially launched the FCA model bootcamp.
The FCA model bootcamp will be sponsored by Uber, Melcom, Green 8 Capital, Goldcard Resource, Bel Aqua Mineral Water.

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.
