Riohs Originate Graduates 115 Designers With Okyeame Kwame & Christie Brown In Attendance
Wind the clock back to this time last year, and fashion, just like everything else, was in a state of flux. With the coronavirus curtailing real-life shows, the 2021 edition of Riohs Show took place at Alliance Française d’Accra on the 25th of September. Fashion experts have viewed Riohs Show as one of the classic shows to be organized by the Best Fashion School in Ghana that trains individuals to become Fashion Designers in just six (6) months.
In a vast and airy space, 105 designers unveiled their collections – and while they might have weathered the year from hell due to coronavirus, the clothes were as wildly creative as ever. Watching them stomp, strut, and dance down the runway – as their classmates cheered them, delivered a sharp jolt of joy straight to the heart of those sitting in the socially distanced audience.
This year’s edition had a twist from what Riohs Originate is known for. A ceremony and seminar was held for the students on the 23rd of September in Cafe-Bar Noire. The Riohs Graduation Ceremony and Seminar was to enhance the Designers’ ability to stand out in the Fashion Industry as they create their path after their six months intensive training coupled with the three months internship. The Ceremony and Seminar had multiple award-winning Ghanaian musician Okyeame Kwame, founder and creative director of Christie Brown Aisha Ayensu , author and TV personality Jot Agyeman, and formal marketing manager of Tigo Jesse Agyepong as speakers for the debut edition.
The main show witnessed more than nine hundred (900) guests in attendance with most of them being CEOs of Corporate Institutions, Business Leaders, Associates of the Company, past and present Students of the School, Celebrities, and Guardians of the graduating students.
The CEO of Riohs Originate (Mr. Richard Ohene Sika) indicated that the Seminar and Fashion Show were put together to boost the confidence of the graduates and also to provide leverage to usher them into the fashion industry. He mentioned that Riohs Show has always kept the standards. The Organizers have ensured that each year’s event is unique. He mentioned that he was impressed with the combination of fabrics, concepts, designs, and ultimately the creative collections of the graduates on the night. He attributed this to the special plan the school put in place to change student perception about fashion illustration which was key for every Fashion Designer.
Mr. Ohene Sika indicated that the strategy of the school has always been to churn out students who can create sustainable fashion businesses while contributing meaningfully to the socio-economic development of Ghana.
Riohs Originate has established itself as the Best Fashion School in Ghana providing six months of tuition in fashion design and illustration. The Company is credited and noted for stating the six (6) months course in Fashion Design and Illustration. This was started about ten years ago and others have followed the path. The Company has been recognized for its outstanding impact in churning out professional Fashion Designers in Ghana and beyond. The Company won the Best Modeling Event of the Year at the just ended Ghana Models Awards
