Far – Rhoda

The most striking thing about this young lady is her motherly nature. A completely in-charge person who remains grounded. She will take care of all your fashion needs. She clearly knows what she is about, especially having sacrificed her regular job to learn fashion. After obtaining a degree Integrated development, she had fulfilled the long held dream of the family for her to gain a formal education at the highest pinnacle. But her love for fashion which had begun as a child had not died out. She grew up as the daughter of a mother who was a seamstress. She would regularly go to her shop in hopes of learning how to sew herself. Her mother thinking a formal education was a safer and better option would constantly have her on errands rather than learn the trade. That was her bid to put out that flicker of fashion flame. In school, and this primary school, she would end up drawing designs. This caused most of her mates in class to declare they knew what she was going to be in future.

Well, that future took quite the while to get here, but it has finally arrived. And its to stay. Her own life’s journey caused her to name her brand “FAR”. She understands clearly the limitations finances can have on a person’s desires and wishes. So she will understand and cooperate with you in getting the best quality for the price you can afford. Quality isn’t cheap, but quality can be expressed in ways that everybody can appreciate. She makes clothes that make you want to work hard to be able to afford. Clothes that make your wardrobe look better after they have been added than before they were added. Clothes that compliment your greatest assets and bring out the elegance you need to put forward.

Hand picked by Mrs Mensah, the founder of Afra K fashion school, to become the SRC president, she has come a long way from her early days as the daughter of a watch repairer. Her family has had its own journey, marked by continuous replanting of the family in a new location. The similarity is in that they began in Laterbiokorshie and steadily moved till where they live now in SCC Kasoa through Odorkor, Aworshie and others. Its from Kasoa she comes to East Legon each day to Afra K fashion school. Despite the stress involved in doing this she still maintains it is totally worth it. She thoroughly search through various options of fashion schools available and more convenient due to proximity but still chose Afra K Fashion school, because she saw the difference in the multiple facets of training available.

Even during the difficult times in university where she alongside her best friend made beads for sale to supplement her upkeep, they made every effort to continually donate some of those proceeds to the Jirapa Orphanage. Clearly a soul that understands giving. And she will give of her best in making your clothes and accessories. It has been quite a journey getting thus ‘FAR’ but its about only getting started for the patrons if her clothing line. We are certain she will give and give and give the truest of her ability each day and stitch to extend the potentials of the Ghana fashion enclave.

All these qualities are quite evident in her dress making. The kind of clothes that shows one off as a proud mother would. The kind that cares for you. The right colours to compliment your skin tone. Bold and ever engaging.
