The maiden edition of the Volta Fashion Awards, established to honor stakeholders and fashionistas in the Volta Region for their respective accomplishments and duty to fashion in the region, has been scheduled for September 14.
The novel event would see all the region’s A-list models, fashion designers, fashion photographers, bloggers, make-up artists, among others assemble at the G.M Afeti Auditorium in Ho, to acknowledge their exploits in the field, and ultimately compete for bragging rights in the Volta Region.
According to organizers of the show, Strawman Event and Versatile Entertainment, the awards, notwithstanding the truth that it would determine which individuals or brands are in the ascendancy, has also been created to celebrate and promote the overall fashion fraternity in the region.
