Graduates of JACCD Design Institute Africa, formerly Joyce Ababio College of Creative Design, presented splendid designs on the runway at the school’s North Legon premises as part of their 27th graduation ceremony.

The event which took place on Saturday, December 17, 2022 saw original outfits designed by over 30 students and a collection of innovative women’s and men’s clothing designs showcased on the catwalk highlighted why JACCD has been among the top institutes in creative design in Ghana offering top notch training in the creative professions.

Beautiful dresses, oversized coats and vibrant prints were part of the eclectic mix of clothing on display. Each team of models and designers had a distinct theme for their outfits, with almost all groups wearing dresses made from African fabrics and another displaying clothes more suited to international calls.

One of the venues in the auditorium was attended by family, friends, members of the public and industry experts, including David-Kusi Boye Doe and Ronald Kizito, both renowned fashion designers and alumni from school.

A total of 120 students received graduation certificates, including graphic designers and fashion students. Of the 120 graduates, Sheena Edem, Diallo Binta and Dennis Williams were recognized as the top three students overall.

“Our mission as a college is not only to be the leader in creative education in Africa, but also to redirect thinking about creative professions,” said the institute’s president, Madame Joyce. Ababio. “With what our students presented today, we have made another step towards that goal,” she added.

Justifying the rationale behind the focus on entrepreneurship, she said, “Sewing is one thing, but you have to understand the business side of it. People need to realize that while talent can take you a long way, the application of proper business principles or concepts will determine many of those who succeed in the field and, sadly, those who fail.

The showcase gave a great insight into why JACCD remains the benchmark for creative schools in the country and was the first in many ways.
