Where to start? You have probably read other reviews around and whatnot of the designer competition that took place in the front yard of the MJ Grand Hotel. Overall, Project Walkway Ghana 2012 was an enjoyable event, the young designers, who might need to work on their personal branding and presentation, were still no less than impressive when it came to their designs. Some of the models could have been upgraded, and besides that, between the display of the contestants and the announcement of the winner, was a long fashion show with various designers that almost exhausted the event. The fashion show which was left out of our video consisted of numerous talented designers, which a handful could have worked for a good side attraction but almost turned out to be a wide distraction.
Taking away the critique above the show was a blast, everyone who attended enjoyed themselves, a model by the name of Phillip definitely brought character and laughter to the event, and the winning designer, Joycelyn, was just lovely with great designs. Designer competitions like Project Walkway might be all over in foreign countries outside of Africa, but Project Walkway is the first of its kind in Ghana. Such platforms should be highly appreciated. Doors are not easy to open, especially in countries where mainstream culture is far-fetched from the native. Bertha Owusu, the hard-working lady who went through the ups and downs to maintain what started off as a reality show, and create a platform for young budding designers, should be highly proud of herself. We hope they manage to solidify themselves as solid sponsors for the following year and make a great example of Joycelyn and her label, Miss Lyn.
