THE GHANAIAN FIRST LADY AND HER FASHION SENSE

Being the wife of the first gentleman of the country is not an easy task, they must inspire not just morally but also fashion wise. They also presented themselves well (fashion-wise) wherever they found themselves.
Let’s look at how they looked and presented themselves during public appearances.

Fathia Nkrumah

Fathia Nkrumah truly represented the era of the fifties, where women dress smartly and good grooming and tailored looks were prized.


Nana Konadu Agyemang Rawlings

NANA KONADU AGYEMAN RAWLINGS
With Nana Konadu Agyemang Rawlings being the first lady of the new Ghana republic, there is indeed no doubt that she set a mark in the way the first ladies of Ghana and in fact Ghanaian women should dress. Her signature head wraps can never be forgotten – she was seen with head wraps when accompanying her husband to functions and even when she had to carry out projects of her own.

Theresa Kuffour

The ‘Gentle Giant’s’ wife Madam Theresa Kuffuor was well recognised for her ‘third piece’ a folded cloth that she draped on her hand or shoulder. There is hardly any picture of Madam Theresa without a third piece. For one thing, mother Theresa knew how to pick colours that did complement her complexion.

Naadu Mills

If there is one thing we notice about Naadu Mills, it’s the way her style of dressing always drew attention to her jewellery. Her choice of colourful prints; from Ghana's batik to  traditional kente always brought out her beautiful skin tone. Her beautiful neckline was always adorned with statement jewellery that matched her attire.

Lordina Mahama

Madam Lordina Mahama truly represents the diversity in today’s Ghanaian fashion. Mixing colours with patterns, one can only admire how she pulls that off every time. It comes as no shock that on a presidential visit to England, Queen Elizabeth did nothing but to admire her style of dressing when they met her at the Buckingham Palace.
