Rue 114 is Designer of the Year

Proud moment for Ghana! Rue 114 has been named Designer of the Year by Full Figured Fashion Week. Rue 114 celebrates women of all shapes and sizes and makes the most beautiful styles for all of them. For them modern African inspired fashion must be pushed beyond all boundaries and that is why they make it a point to use prints as the foundation of their work.
Recently they launched their first Spring/Summer collection dubbed, 'Prints - n- Scribes'. It's an amazing collection filled with fresh cuts and colorful prints just for the season. Oh and guess what, each piece in this collection is named after a special friend who inspired Rue 114 to its success.
We know you'll love these just as much as we do.

The OB lette

Okay so we held this back yesterday just so we could give him all the attention he deserves.
So guess who's birthday fell on Father's Day? Ob Abenser! Yes, exciting we know and that's why we're celebrating him today.
Ob's the founder of FashionistaGH, a fashion blogger and great videographer. Close to two years in the industry, he's managed to make tremendous impact and carve a name for himself as well. We're trying to do a head count of which brands he's worked with but that just seems impossible, he's been with almost everyone. 
Our guy's an ardent worker, he loves what he does and goes all out for it. How he manages to flash a smile at everyone and crack jokes even in the heat of the most difficult situations is still a wonder to us all. 
With the success of the FashionistaGH Shopping Festival, his award from the Ministry of Trade and Industry and the fgh TV coming up, he has a lot to celebrate now and even more to rejoice for soon. 
We're priviledged to have the coolest and most visionary guy ever heading us and we take pride in the knowledge that we have the gem of the fashion industry next to us.
So on a great day like this, we'll wish our father, friend and boss Ob, many more years of hard work and the sweet success that comes with it.

Happy Father's Day!

Happy Father's Day to all dads out there.
FashionistaGH celebrates all the brave men who have in one way or another nurtured people and made lasting impressions on their hearts.
On this special day, gifts of all sorts are flying around in appreciation of the great men in our lives and you wouldn't want to leave your dad out.
Fortunately, Woodin went out of its way to help us all make today memorable. We just love what they did.
All you have to do is grab a special Woodin shirt for your dad and then you get to win a surprise gift.
So hopefully, everydad's going to have something special to remember this day with.
