“Innovation is the change that unlocks new value”- Jamie Notter. Over the years, there has been few personalities in the country that have embarked on an endless journey to propel the creative and fashion industry to greater heights. Out of the few, a fewer has been successful.
Ms. Joyce Ababio, multiple award winning fashion designer and hall of famer, founder and visionary president of the Joyce Ababio College of Creative Design and the JACCD Professional Development Center adds yet another accolade to her ever growing honors. Her pioneering role in the fashion and creative industry was once again recognized at the initiators of change foundation awards held at the State Banquet Hall on 9th November 2017.
Ms. Joyce Ababio, has for 25 years worked tirelessly to raise the standards of practitioners and change the stereotype that most of the people who train in that industry are academic failures and school dropouts.
With an eye for excellence and a main focus to enrich the fashion industry especially after she had trained and worked in the United States of America for 13 years, Ms. Ababio returned to Ghana and established the Vogue Style School of Fashion and Design in 1995, Now JACCD. The school, which started with only five students, has produced over 1000 students with their own labels.
They include designers such as Aisha Obuobi, Christie Brown, Ophelia Crossland, Christina Parker, Gladys Brew, among others.
Her recent innovation, the JACCD Professional Development Center which seeks to provide education for all, proves her ever willing quest to influence her society positively and provide opportunities to many.
We Congratulate our president and founder once again as she continues to serve as the role model to the students and the entire industry.
