Beyoncé is kicking off 2020 with a major fashion moment -- in the form of her debut Ivy Park collection for Adidas. The superstar took to Instagram this week to offer her 135 million followers the first glimpse of her new fashion collection, after announcing she would be partnering with the sportswear giant earlier this year.

"This new line is fun and lends itself to creativity, the ultimate power," Beyonce told Elle magazine in the publication's January 2020 cover story. "I focused on designing a unisex collection of footwear and apparel because I saw so many men in IVY PARK. The way they have embraced the brand is an unexpected gift. I appreciate the beauty of gender-neutral clothing and breaking the so-called fashion rules." Beyoncé first launched her Ivy Park brand with the fashion retailer Topshop back in 2016, but assumed full ownership of the company in 2018, before making the switch to German sportswear giant Adidas in April.

Mills Media Announces “Asantewaa: Battle For The Golden Stool” Comic Book And Game.

Published

on

Asantewaa-Battle For The Golden Stool” is the very first Ghanaian/African superhero featured character in a comic book and video game. The creators of this wonderful piece are driven by a strong sense of passion for culture and this piece is geared towards unveiling the culture and ancestral memories of Africa and to show the world there are real life superheroes people don’t know about yet.

When we think of superheroes, we usually see them as people dressed in costumes who have the ability to either fly, breath fire, punch through brick walls or even shoot webs.

However, there are individuals who do not have these special abilities but have done great things and these are the real heroes. These are our heroes, particularly African heroes and our motherland Ghana has seen the existence of many super heroes. The problem however, is our failure to acknowledge these great men and women as the heroes.

Instead, we have warmly embraced the fictional heroes created for us in movies and in books. “Heroes of the Past” is a project aimed at presenting the great Ghanaian men and women who have contributed to our Ghanaian history to the world in a modern and exciting way.

“Asantewaa- battle for the Golden Stool” is a modern retell of the story of the great Yaa Asantewaa, who exhibited pure bravery when she led the Ashanti Kingdom against British Colonialism in 1900. She led her people to fight the British to protect the Golden stool which was and still remains  the symbol and pride of the Ashanti  Kingdom.

Yaa  Asantewaa is the reason why the Ashantis still take pride in the Golden stool. This project gives you the opportunity to relive these great historical moments as it provides interesting dialogue and graphic representation of events.

What a better way to learn about the history of our great nation than through the eye of an artist. It presents relatable characters which would make everyone especially children easily fall in love with our past Ghanaian heroes.

How cool would it be if our children would prefer to have Ghanaian/African hero themed parties instead of a Spiderman or ironman theme party. Technology is the sure way to achieve this.

GREATER ACCRA, GHANA (www.georgebritton.com) - An African fashion-art event dubbed “Fashion Connect Africa” (FCA) has been launched in Accra at the Movenpick Ambassador Hotel on Monday as part of events lined up for 2019 Year of Return program.

The FCA is aimed at promoting the African creative spirit, exposure for both Ghanaian and the African Fashion industry players. It also seeks to bring together global fashion players and the indigenous African fashion industry on the same platform to share ideas, solutions and find a way forward for the industry.

Slated for December 30 at the Movenpick Hotel in Accra, the main event promises to debut as one of the most monumental events in Ghana’s fashion industry history, a unique and glamorous convergence that will bring together decision makers, socialites, diplomats, fashion stakeholders, enthusiasts, music lovers, celebrities and members of the diaspora community.

Top model Victoria Michaels who was unveiled as the face of FCA in an address expressed optimism about African fashion taking over the world stage with events like the FCA despite challenges in the industry.

“Though we have seen a lot of collaborations among Africans in different regions, and the Fashion Industry as a whole, yet the industry still remains small scale as members of the African Fashion Industry do not have enough resources that will enable them have the same global visibility as their peers in other developed regions. This is the reason why Fashion Connect Africa was born,” she stated.

“Our vision is to create a global platform that empowers and gives a voice to both the established and upcoming creatives in the fashion Industry.

Published

on

South Sudanese Star model Adut Akech was named 'Model of the Year' at last night's star-studded British Fashion Awards in London, earning her one of the biggest accolades during this year's ceremony.

The 19-year-old, South Sudanese-born model, beat out the likes of Adwoa Aboah, Kaia Gerber and Winnie Harlow to claim the recognition.

During her acceptance speech, Akech, who moved with her family to Australia as a young girl after fleeing South Sudan, touched on the need for better representation of women who look like her in the fashion industry. "It is important for all of us to remember that someone like me winning this award is a rarity," she said.

"This is for the young women and men who found representation and validation in my work. I want them to never be afraid of dreaming big like I once did."

The model has openly called out racism in the fashion industry in the past. Back in August, she called out Australia's Who Magazine after they published a story about her with a picture of a different model. "I feel as though this would've not have happened to a white model," she said at the time. "Not only do I personally feel insulted and disrespected, but I feel like my entire race has been disrespected," she added.

According to The Independent, the star model received a standing ovation after delivering her speech. Several artists, models, designers and more attended the ceremony (sometimes referred to as the 'Oscars of British Fashion), which took place at Royal Albert Hall, including Rihanna who won the Urban Luxe award for her label FENTY, which launched this year. The award was presented to her by Janet Jackson.

Several other fashion icons, including Naomi Campbell, Tracee Ellis Ross, British Vogue's Editor-In-ChIef Edward Enninful and plenty others were also in attendance for last night's awards. Check out some more of the action and standout looks below.
