SFD students participated and won in the following categories.

The event was held at Kwame Nkrumah Gardens, Accra on March 9, 2019. Winners will collect their awards in an official ceremony that will be held on March 31, 2019 at the National Theatre. During the ceremony, SFD will also showcase a collection sponsored by GTP textiles.
The month of March 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.
