My Vlisco Prêt-a-Couture Journey:

So yesterday was exactly a week since I started my Vlisco Prêt-a-Couture journey. I set off to the Vlisco flagship store in Accra Mall for the fitting and I was excited! Wow! I was amazed at the sight of my outfits. My wrap dress, lily dress and crop jacket turned out well. I quickly tried on the wrap dress and then with the crop jacket which were both a perfect fit, with no adjustments needed. The Pret-A-Couture outfits are all created to be versatile and to mix and match with each other.

So I can wear the wrap dress with or without the crop jacket. Or mix them with other items from the collection. My lily dress is bright and beautiful! Vlisco tailors are indeed true specialists in print placement – look at how they placed the pattern to complement the style of the dress. With just a few minor adjustments to the dress, I’ll be ready to show off my outfits to the world. What do you think? Do you have a favourite? #Vlisco #Vliscotailoring #Visitvliscoaccramall

I am beyond proud of our Project Manager Delphina Agyare for successful setting up GirlTech in Burkina Faso. She trained 8 female mentors who will train the girls in Burkina Faso.The girls learnt about technology, blogging and coding. They ended up creating blogs and building functional websites.
Delphina was amazing. She choose to stay in Burkina Faso after the unfortunate bombing incident and complete the project. It took a lot of courage to stay especially since the incident happened not too far from her. Tuares our partnering organization did everything to make her feel safe. She showed true leadership,courage and resilence. She could not just leave the women and girls who loved the program and wanted to complete the training. She showed true leadership.
I am happy to announce we have successful started the movement to empower girls to lead and innovate by learning to code with GirlTech in Burkina Faso. We look forward to expanding to other countries. Special thanks to Tuares for being an amazing partner.
