Accra has made a debut in the Fashion Capital Rankings.
Accra ranked 62nd out of 63 cities in the 2018 world rankings.
A fashion capital is a city which has a major influence on international fashion trends and in which the design, production and retailing of fashion products plus events such as fashion weeks, awards and trade fairs generate significant economic output.
An annual ranking of the leading fashion capitals is produced by Global Language Monitor, a US-based company that tracks trends through language use worldwide.
This achievement shows how great the capital city of Ghana is doing when it comes to fashion.
Other African cities that also debuted in the rankings are Dakar (56) and Lagos (60).
The top five fashion cities, however, are New York City, Paris, Barcelona, Milan and Rome.
Below is the full list:
We hope Accra would rise up the ranks in 2019.
