Ghanaian fashion accessories designer, Aphia Sakyi has disclosed how her products got to be featured in one of the most anticipated movies of 2021 – Coming 2 America.
The pieces were worn by characters in the movie released in March 2021.
“They sent a message regarding the pieces they wanted to use and then I sent a piece as a sample for them to decide if it works for them. And it worked so they requested for more pieces and then we sent to them,” she revealed on Citi FM’s Celebrity Radar.
Aphia Sakyi also indicated the extent to which the movie has helped her brand.
“The movie has really helped the brand and we have gained a lot of recognition in Ghana and in Africa as part of the designers featured in the movie which is a plus for the country. It will also encourage up-and-coming designers.”
Sakyi ventured into the life of designing whilst studying Business Administration at the Regent University of Ghana.
Her brand won Accessory Brand of the Year at the 2018 Fashion Ghana Honours and Awards. Her work has been featured at AFI Cape Town Fashion Week, Accra Fashion Week, Passion for Fashion Showcase, and the Africa Fashion Week, London.
A fashion accessory designed by Sakyi was used by Janet Jackson in her first Instagram video in honour of her brother Michael Jackson.
