The Chief Executive officer (CEO) of Cadling Fashions, one of the most accomplished fashion houses in Ghana, Mrs Linda Ampah, has encouraged Ghanaian youth with passion for fashion and designing to consider venturing into other aspect of the fashion industry value chain such as cutting, stitching and finishing to benefit from the job opportunities available in that sector. She said there is a large market for these services and very few companies are meeting the need. According to her, due to the high demand for the services such as cutting, stitching, and finishing, anyone who provides these services will be good in business.
Mrs Ampa made the call during the official opening of Cadling Fashions and outlet in East Legon, Accra. Since it’s inception in 1996, the Cadling Fashions has been designing custom made clothes for Ghanaians. One of the masterpieces of the fashion brand was worn by former US First Lady Michelle Obama when she visited South Africa. She applauded Ghanaians for believing in her and patronising her made in Ghana clothes and accessories. “Our acceptance of these locally inspired textiles, has led to a boom in our fashion industry and opened up the industry for more people to find employment in various aspects of the industry, Mrs Ampa said.
