History of the Fashion Industry in Ghana
The fashion industry in Ghana is predominately of textiles and clothing and therefore largely consists of local artisans and designers who specialise in the reinvention of traditional clothes such as kente and fugu as well as wax prints with a modern sense of touch. The fashion industry in Ghana emerged in the second half of the 20th century when the first beauty pageant was held in 1957 and the first local textiles manufacturing firm, Ghana Textiles Printing Limited was established in 1966.
