A final year student at the fashion Department of Radford University college has won the coveted crown in the maiden edition of the Multi TV award for the best “Fashion Talent 2016”.
Nii Adjei Dromo Mensah, 26, shrugged off competition from seven others in the reality show as his confirmation that Radford University is leading the pack when it comes to the fashion industry.
The Executive Chairman of Radford University, Nana Dwomoh Sarpong and Head of Fashion Department, Yvonne Ntiamoah, who were delighted for the feat opined that the fashion industry holds a lot of prospects but requires official intervention in the form of regulating policies to counter dumping.
The fashion industry, they believe has the potential of creating jobs and explained that employment opportunities exist at each stage of the production chain; from the cotton farmer all the way through to the end user.
Nana Sarpong said the economic benefits from exports while establishing Ghana as an international brand are all too glaring.
Madam Ntiamoah recounted the success story of the Fashion Department.
“We have for the third time running, successfully organized the Radford Graduates Fashion Show, a masterpiece of fashion excellence that has become a permanent feature on the country’s fashion calendar,” she said.
Award winner Nii Adjei Mensah said he was "looking forward to establishing a fashion house after my course and help deepen the understanding and appreciation of fashion. Fashion is integral to our custom, traditions and heritage”.
Madam Ntiamoah commended Multi TV for the ingenuity and encouraged corporate Ghana and multinationals to join the campaign to make the Ghanaian fashion industry competitive and comparable to global standards.
“We need to carry fashion to a new level. All three judges agreeing on the award is a testimony that the Radford University is an established university committed to excelling in all its unique programs, fashion inclusive” she stated.
