This comprehensive approach has produced graduates who are able to excel in every aspect of the fashion industry, from designing to marketing.
Another notable achievement of BlueCrest School of Fashion and Design is its fashion shows. The school hosts an annual fashion show dubbed Apaso) Akasa (meaning scissors talk in the Twi language) as well as the end of semester fashion shows which showcases the work of its students. These fashion shows have become one of the highlights of the fashion calendar in Ghana, with fashion industry professionals and enthusiasts eagerly anticipating the latest creations from the school’s talented students.
The fashion shows are a testament to the school’s commitment to providing students with hands-on experience in the fashion industry. Students are responsible for every aspect of the show, from designing the garments to organising the event. This real-world experience is invaluable for students who are looking to break into the fashion industry.
Over the past 10 years, BlueCrest School of Fashion and Design has also established partnerships with various organisations in Ghana and beyond. These partnerships provide students with opportunities to gain practical experience by working with established organisations.
