I am a fashion STYLIST, BLOGGER CONSULTANT and, runway SHOW PRODUCER! I am very passionate about fashion globally and in Ghana, where the industry is developing at speedy rates.
Growing up, I first fell in love with fashion by watching my mother's fashion process. Her style was classy, yet effortless. The bold jewelry pieces, the pencil heels, and vibrant colour and prints. I never understood the process until my undergrad years in college. It was never about having current pieces with my mother it really was all about her personal style. The intrigue turned into curiosity, which became a passion, which has now become my life.
Africa really inspires fashion globally. We are popular for our bold colours, wild life, blue waters, tribal prints, bold patterns; zig zags, and irregular shapes and the colour black that is Africa in a nutshell. Our fashion industry is growing rapidly and serves as inspiration to the global fashion landscape albeit unintentional. I partnered with House Of Cramer where I honed my skills. An opportunity I am very grateful for. We have mounds of untapped talent, and creatives, who inspires me as I open up my second chapter in the fashion industry as Styled by Rida.
I adapted elements of my mother’s process influenced by my Ghanaian culture and global fashion, to create my own process, which I would like to share with you.
