First Lady, Rebecca Akufo-Addo
It is often said that the way you dress decides how you would be addressed, and it is certainly not a coincidence that Ghanaian fashion was on proud display at Parliament House last Tuesday, February 21, 2017, when President Akufo-Addo delivered his debut State of The Nation Address.
Different designs of ‘kaba and slit’, a common Ghanaian traditional wear, and different patterns of ‘kente’ and the traditional smock (also called ‘fugu’ or ‘batakari’) dominated fashion trends at the ceremony.
NEWS-ONE reproduces photos which captured some of society’s notables at the ceremony clad in traditional Ghanaian fashion styles.
