Ghanaian fashion accessory designer Aphia Sakyi has revealed how her work was featured in the American comedy “Coming 2 America”.
The pieces were worn by characters from the film released in March 2021.
“They sent a message regarding the parts they wanted to use, and then I sent a part as a sample for them to decide if it works for them. And it worked, so they asked for more coins and then we sent them, ”Sakyi revealed to Kwame Dadzie on Citi FM’s“ Celebrity Radar ”.
“The film has really helped the brand and we have gained a lot of notoriety in Ghana and Africa as the creators featured in the film which is a plus for the country. It will also encourage aspiring creators. “
Sakyi ventured into the life of design while studying Business Administration at Regent University in Ghana.
She is currently the founder of a design school and a fashion brand.
Her brand won the “Accessories Brand of the Year” award at the 2018 Fashion GHANA Honors and Awards. Her work has been featured at AFI Cape Town Fashion Week, Accra Fashion Week, Passion for Fashion Showcase and Africa Fashion Week, London.
A fashion accessory designed by Sakyi was featured by Janet Jackson in her first Instagram video in honor of her brother Michael Jackson.
