BlueCrest Women’s Day set to theme of Wear Ghana month
BlueCrest College celebrated the Women’s Day and Wear Ghana Month in style as students and staff turned up at the campus in fashionable, traditional Ghanaian wear on March 8, 2019.
Ms Serwah Quaynor, founder and executive director of the Autism Awareness, Care and Training (AACT) was the chief guest at the event. In her speech, Ms Quaynor spoke about embracing differences and working harder to build a better nation.
A competition was also held for students and staff members to adjudge Best African Wear— Male and Female (Staff), Best African Wear — Male and Female (Students) and Best African Accessories — Male and Female. Cash prizes were handed out to the winners in these categories.
While March 8 is celebrated across the globe as “Women’s Day” to celebrate women and the spirit of womanhood, the month is known in Ghana as the Wear Ghana month. It is widely celebrated in households and organisations across the sixteen regions of the country as people flaunt traditional and locally made clothes.
The purpose of this celebration is to encourage traditional Ghanaian wear and support local manufacturers, artists and designers who are facing the heat of fast fashion and tilting preference towards western fashion trends.
