VOTEC Organises Fashion Show for Final Year Students

The Department of Vocational and Technical Education (VOTEC) has organised a fashion show for final year students reading Clothing and Textiles. It was on the theme “Unison of Western and African Prints in our Daily Lives”. The event, which is held every academic year for final year students as part of their academic work, was designed to promote made in Ghana goods and also to showcase the African culture through fashion. Sponsored by Tigo, Indomie, and Kalyppo, the show featured designs of 21 students who showcased casual and office wear, cocktail and club wear, party and beach wear, casual and dinner wear, formal and church wear, occasional and office wear. The rest were bridal and children wear, casual and cocktail wear, office and traditional wear, and casual and dinner wear. The fashion models- adorned in elegantly designed fabrics - majestically took to the runway to showcase their designs to the audience. Patrons at the event were visibly fascinated by the wide range of designs put on display by the student designers. The Head of the Department, Dr. Christine Boateng, who was a member of the panel of Judges for the show, commended the students for their dexterity and thanked the parents and guardians of the students for their support. She announced that the Department would offer programmes in Fine Arts, Sculpture, Communication Designs and, Building and Technology for undergraduates, masters and PhDs in the 2018/2019 academic year. Odikro Royals from the Department of Music and Dance entertained the patrons with traditional and cultural music performance.
