This Monday, I was privileged to witness the launch of GOAL by Standard Chartered Bank Ghana under the leadership of their Chief Executive , Mansa Nettey, at the Right to Dream Academy, Old Akrade.

The objective of the GOAL initiative is to enable young girls between the ages of 12 to 20 in urban areas from low-income families with financial education and life skills so that they can play active leadership roles in their families, communities and economies.

To support the GOAL project, employees will volunteer their time by offering financial education , organising GOAL events , mentoring the girls and offering their skills to support their NGO partners .

The programme seeks to empower adolescent girls using sports and life skills so they can make informed choices and to fulfill their potential. 

GOAL is a global programme of Standard Chartered Bank that has since its inception in 2006, reached over 200,000 girls in 25 countries equipping them with the confidence, knowledge and skills they need to be integral economic leaders.

With the influx of "cheap" prints on the Ghanaian markets, it is common to see most brands and consumers opt for those prints to save cost whiles sidelining textile brands like GTP, Woodin, Printex among others.

I keep asking myself "Do these textile companies stand a chance against these cheap Chinese fabrics?"

Because not only are these prints cheaper, some are actually imitations of authentic print designs.

It is however commendable to see that a local fashion brand , LOVE ANKARA, chooses to only work with authentic prints.
The brand is making a strong statement by their stance and deserve to be appreciated and supported.


I am sure if other brands follow suit , we will be able to reduce if not completely eliminate these cheap prints.

To curb this menace on our markets is going to take great effort and time . But all hope is not lost, the honours lies upon us as consumers and fashion brands to pick a side. To only use authentic prints , not just those by big companies but also those by small scale local textile manufacturers.

We all need to make an extra effort however we can to make these cheap and imitated prints unattractive.
With brands like LOVE ANKARA, I believe we can achieve this earlier than we think, ONE FASHION BRAND AT A TIME.

Let's keep the conversation going.
What's your take on this topic?

Hello Loves, I hope May did not take you by surprise as it did me. We are going to be alright nonetheless :-).

Everyone who knows me, knows I love sneakers (Tomboy problems lol) and the only thing I fantasize about all year would be swimwear (a contradiction maybe).

Now let's talk about my current obsession, shall we?
I'm not a ballerina kind of girl but Natives by Love Ankara got me all excited about flats, from their Eco-friendly and stylish packaging to how easy it is to put your flats in your purse or clutch. 

I love that the flats are so lightweight and comfortable, and they sure flatter my feet.
After several washes, the print does not fade and the packaging makes it ideal as a gift.

A worthy obsession if you asked me, I "heart" my flats and I "heart" the colour.

 The Native flats are made from premium leather and authentic limited edition African prints( Woodin and GTP), they are foldable and machine and hand washable. The in-soles are soft and prioritize comfort. Natives are hand-made in Ghana and available in sizes 38 to 44, delivery available both in Ghana and across the world on order and pre-order.

A Little information about the Love Ankara Brand;

" Love Ankara is about re-defining what authentic African fabric is. Our brand is a retail, fashion and decor brand that seeks to promote authentic African prints, empower women and preserve our local textile industries. Love Ankara fabrics, shoes and accessories are worn by powerful, outspoken, daring empowered women the world over...Women who are not afraid to be authentic, to be true to who they are! Love Ankara is our creative way of depicting our distinct cultures and personalities by showcasing our rich heritage through prints, fashion and decor.

This is what makes us quintessentially African and by telling our story, we hope you'll come to love our brand and tell the world about it."
