The awards, slated for 10th September 2016, also seek to strengthen the growing fashion industry through development, promotion and setting international industry standard. The event is an opportunity for the fashion industry to celebrate and promote the extraordinary creative talents in Ghana and Africa as a whole.
The first edition last year was a gathering of the nation’s biggest stars clad in glamorous dresses, bespoke tuxedos, and traditional pieces. The spectacular night had several high-profile individuals picking up awards in different categories for their outstanding fashion sense.
The 2016 Glitz Style Awards has 16 categories which include; Designer of the year, Model of the year, Stylist of the Year, Fashion Photographer of the year, Most Stylish Music, Radio and TV Personalities among others.
To select the winners, the organizers approach over 200 members of the fashion industry to vote for the front-runners of this year’s accolades. The voting guests mostly include industry insiders, journalists, fashion bloggers, stylists, buyers, influencers and fashion icons. The general public this year again will not be left behind, as they will have the chance for their voices to be heard by voting for their favorites via social media.
Nominations starts on Monday, 25th July 25, 2016 and ends on Monday, 15th August, 2016.
