GFDW 2012 was a mind blowing event, one of the best in Africa and for the first time in its history. Designers and Models came from all over the world, making Ghana (Accra) the centre spring of Africa culture. This year GFDW it's a 'must not miss show', I will surely be coming from Nigeria to Ghana (Accra) for the show again this year.
