Women's Month 2013 A Vlisco Dutch Wax Textile Co. initiative. 1ST PRIZE - KYEREWATA ATTA-KRAH FROM GHANA: The brand name is April Rust. It is a women's ready-to-wear line that mainly targets women between the ages of 15 and 30. It is currently a small business that I run from my home in Accra, Ghana. I design, sew and market everything personally, making good use of social media and networking, especially through my fan page (@April Cochran-Smith Rust) on Facebook.

Meeting Vlisco, the Euro African Love Brand in Accra – Story from: 'Around the World in 80 Brands' by CoolBrands. The driver navigates through Accra’s busy streets and drops us off outside Makola Market. “I’ll wait for you here,” he says, then adds, “Don’t mess with Makola Market. Go with the flow, give in or go under.” “What does that mean?” I ask Roger, as we merge with the crowd of market goers.
