The goal is to foster discussions, motivate individuals and industries to make sustainable choices, and promote environmental conservation.

The Creative President of NINETEEN57, Kofi Okyere-Darko (K O D), stated, “As we venture into ‘The Aqua Edition,’ we are reminded that our actions have a profound impact on our planet and future generations. It is our sacred duty to safeguard these invaluable havens of biodiversity, not just for the sake of our children, but for the entire world to inherit the beauty and life they hold. Through this event, we aspire to promote conscious consumerism, visionary design, and thoughtful decision-making that prioritize environmental stewardship and social responsibility.”

This year’s event promises an unforgettable evening featuring top-tier talents in music and fashion. Expect a mesmerizing fusion of traditional African rhythms, contemporary beats, and captivating runway displays by renowned African designers. Rhythms On Da Runway will celebrate Africa’s diverse cultural identity and global influence.


The event will feature iconic musical performances, including renowned African artists who will showcase the continent’s musical richness. Accompanying this musical extravaganza will be a spectacular fashion showcase featuring talented designers who draw inspiration from Africa’s vibrant cultures and natural landscapes.

“Rhythms On Da Runway – The Aqua Edition” is not just an event; it’s a powerful testament to the transformative potential of collective action. Together, we will amplify our voices for positive change, illuminate the urgency of environmental issues, and stand as stewards of our planet’s future.

As we harmonize music, fashion, and responsibility, let this event be a declaration of our commitment to a brighter, more sustainable tomorrow. Be a part of this extraordinary experience, where we celebrate Africa’s rich heritage, pay tribute to trailblazers, and champion the solutions that will ensure our planet thrives for generations to come.

Fashion Expressions empowers 15 young women from vulnerable communities with skills in fashion

United Nations Population Fund Ghana (UNFPA) Ghana and International Needs Ghana have hosted a fashion show to round up on a social impact project named Fashion Expressions.

The project has empowered 15 young women from vulnerable communities with skills in fashion and design, including pattern-making, sewing, and marketing. In addition to this, they received training in financial literacy and entrepreneurship, to enable them start out on their own with the knowledge and skills gained.

They underwent 6 months of training at the Centre for Empowerment and Enterprise Development in Adidome and graduated in December 2022.

Watch Highlights from the event on Ameyaw TV

They then partook in a 6-month industrial attachment with established fashion brands in Ghana such as Poqua Poqu, Kua Designs, Sadia Sanusi, Boye Doe, Mimmy Yeboah, Fakor Mortoo, Dash Fashion, and GG Bespoke.

The fashion showcase held at the World Trade Centre in Accra on September 8 rounded up the training and industrial attachment phase and served as graduation ceremony for the programme. It highlighted the skills and knowledge acquired by the trainees, alongside the stories of the empowerment of these young women.

Speaking at the graduation, the UNFPA Country Representative, Dr. Wilfred Ochan praised the project, saying: “This partnership between UNFPA and PRADA is an excellent example of how the private sector can work with the UN to achieve the Sustainable Development Goals. We hope that this project will encourage more companies to invest in the empowerment of women and girls.”

The trainees produced a unique line of designs that showcased their creativity and ingenuity. They took turns with various models to display their collections through catwalks on the stage to the admiration of the audience.
Also speaking at the ceremony, the UN Resident Coordinator in Ghana, Mr. Charles Abani, noted the power of fashion and design as a tool for social change. He said, ‘this initiative can uniquely empower young women economically while contributing to positive discourse around climate action.’

The closure was attended by government officials, UN officials, members of the diplomatic corps, traditional leaders, the private sector, civil society actors as well as friends and family members of the beneficiaries of the pilot programme.
