The much-anticipated ‘Dress Code’ fashion event will finally be hitting the fashion industry this July, where young designers will be given the opportunity to showcase their talent.
The show was scheduled to take off some months ago but organizers, The Domain, had to postpone the event to a subsequent date with the aim of presenting a standard class show.
On July 20 the event will be held in grand style with many fashion aficionados passing through.   
The ‘Dress Code’ fashion event is aimed at promoting the local fashion and the textiles industries.
Organizers said ten fashion illustrators from five of the nation’s polytechnic fashion departments had been selected through auditions. They would use illustrations to design trendy garments, using our local fabrics.
They will be mentored by experienced designers like the legend Kofi Ansah, Kwasi Nti, Yvonne Exclusive and many others.
This will also help to raise the falling standards in polytechnic institutions and also bring a healthy competition among the students to increase the creativity level in the fashion industry.
“It is a platform for exploring and creating more jobs, while aiming at sustaining the local industry (the textile industry). It is a national duty for all to help fight. There are too many foreign products on our market. It is killing our businesses,” Mercy Takyie, CEO of The Domain stated in a press statement yesterday.
