Actress Pascaline Edwards has hosted the maiden edition of her “Pret a Porter” charity fashion show which came off at the department of Parks and Gardens in Cantonments, Accra on Saturday, April 2.
The charity event, which saw the launch of the actress’ clothing line “Prêt à Porter” (Ready to Wear) also afforded her colleagues, fans, family and friends in attendance the chance to buy some of the clothes and jewellery she wore on set back in the day.
There were many fashion items ranging from jewellery, bags and most importantly some designs from her new clothing line.
Pascaline Edwards' love for fashion has never been in doubt even when she was busy showcasing her talents as an actress who always brought her A game on set. With acting not taking too much of her time in recent years, she decided to give full attention to her fashion business.
Her intention was to officially launch her clothing line in 2020 when she celebrated her 50th birthday on March 28. However, that could not happen due to the ban on public and social gatherings by President Akufo-Addo when Ghana recorded its first COVID-19 cases.

With things coming back to normal this year, Pascaline Edwards told Graphic Showbiz the time was ripe for her fans in Ghana and beyond to appreciate her skills in fashion.
The charity event, which is expected to be an annual affair, was aimed at raising funds to support the philanthropic works of the actress.
“I have been supporting the less privileged and this will be a good medium to get funding. Sincerely, I’m overwhelmed by the numbers here today considering that the event wasn’t promoted but the love my colleagues, fans, friends and family have for me has made today’s event successful,” she said.
Some patrons who spoke to Graphic Showbiz praised Pascaline Edwards for taking her fashion business a notch higher.
According to Kuukua Adepa who described herself as the "number one fan" of the actress, she got information about the event on Instagram.
“Pascaline Edwards was my favourite actress when I was growing up. I remember how I used to tell my mother to shave off my hair just like she did at the time.
"I’m really happy to meet her in person today and to support her vision as well. I got one of her dresses for just keeps to support her charity works,” she said.
