Nana Owusu Dankwa, a passionate Ghanaian graduate has, with the help of two dedicated friends, built Okratyi Trends, a startup into a brand that is fully fledged.

Speaking to YEN.com.gh, Nana revealed that it all started somewhere in 2013 after he had bagged Higher National Diploma Accountancy (HND) from the Koforidua Technical University.

According to the young CEO, a microfinance company he was working with at the time folded up, forcing him to be in the search for a different source of income.

"My tailor was not able to produce what I really desired so I decided to become an apprentice and learned how to sew dresses and that's how the journey started," he said.

Nana did not build Okrakyi Trends alone

Nana Owusu Dankwa acknowledges that Gideon Akuoku and Emmanuel Asare (Worshipper De Shoemaker) were great pillars that have been instrumental in bringing Okrakyi Trends as far as it has come.

Okrakyi Trends currently has 10 workers with plans of training other apprentices for free and increasing the workforce to 20 by the year 2023.

"We've worked with DKB, Foster Romanus, Teacher Kwadwo, Lekzy Decomic, OB Amponsah, Khemikal, among others. The dream is to be an international clothing brand representing Africa, so we are on a spree to train our own people and employ them to expand the brand. We want to be able to attend fashion shows all over the world. We also want to change that narrative," Nana Owusu further disclosed to YEN.com.gh.
