Sarah Christian was the first to hit the runway. True to the theme for the night,??#?FastAndFurious, Sarah Christian broke onto the runway with models decked in tulle, motorcycle helmets, capes and dark make up. Her designs were accentuated with chunky, jagged, black foam cut to resemble icicles or arrow heads. Her line got the event started on a high and kept patrons asking for more.

Mabel Simpson, MSimps, also won the hearts of patrons with her set, which eventually ended the show. The Deputy Minister of Tourism and Creative Arts, Abla Dzifa?Gomashie has praised Msimps for the unique designs exhibited at Citi FM?s Expressions of Accra last?Saturday.

She wrote on her Facebook Wall: ?Mabel Simpson Msimps you raised?the bar! Msimps at the Citi FM?s Expression of Accra.? Msimps displayed wide range of fashion accessories including handbags, laptop bags, shoes and other accessories with?African print.

Naa Lamiley Kouture?s approach was to keep it simple, yet sophisticated enough for the upwardly mobile person who needs a resourceful wardrobe. Her collection had clothes you can wear anywhere and not be over-dressed or be made to feel inadequate. The young designer deservedly won the admiration of patrons.

The presence of Maksi Clothing on the runway was characterized by a breezy, floaty, dancing on air kind of feel. The talented sister duo nailed it with a collection that guaranteed picture-perfect sways with flowing, floor-length garments in billowy fabric. The male models carried jute bags to complete the look.

Chapter One put out creative, stylish and edgy designs on the runway. For fashionistas who wished to see something that pushed the limits and test the willingness to dare to be different, Chapter One was the brand of choice. He sent out garments with a unique mix of wax print, patterned knits, mesh, jersey and denim with an Anas-tinged vibe. Those were styles one expects to see on fall runways in London, Paris or Milan.

Horseman Shoes? designs were brilliant and classy. Horseman Shoes once again showed that they are peerless in that market space with well designed and crafted hand-made shoes that would rival any other world class shoe brand. The shoes made with leather and GTP fabric represented the true unrivalled Ghanaian excellence made with the craftsmanship of a passionate team.

TRAP Shoes looked very comfortable. Their sandals and slippers are the types that are made with the environment and future generations in mind. They are made with renewable materials and crafted to meet the world highest standard of quality and class. Together with Horseman Shoes, TRAP Shoes gave patrons a reason to give their feet a treat.

The Expressions of Accra: Fast and Furious saw Okyeame Kwame, Dark Suburb and Wiyaala entertaining guests with beautiful music.

Comedian DKB affirmed his position as the true king of Ghanaian comedy after treating the audience to back-to-back comedy session.
