Ghana: Deborah Vanessa - Unlike My Brother Wanluv

Model/Television Presenter/Fashion Designer and Singer Deborah Vanesa has said unlike her brother, Wanluv Kubolor, she can't leave home without putting on underwear.

"I can't do without a bra. Unlike my brother, I always wear underwear," she told Fashion 101 host Sandra Ankobiah.

Vanessa's response was to a question on what she can't leave home without. On a typical day at home, Vanessa explains she could do without make up, but would go for a nice tan top, and what she prefers to call "Nice Chale Wote".

Touching on her flawless sense of fashion, the "Uncle Obama" singer says most of her designs are inspired by works from the 20s and 50s, adding that she would normally go for a touch of elegance, colour and quirkiness.

"I take inspiration from the 20s and 50s," she said.

Apart from the extensive one on one interview with Vanessa, last weekend's Fashion 101 looked at fashion editorials and how it can be improved locally.

Resident panel member Chester Ani, as well as two guest panel members Charlene Asare and Rachqael Williams, expressed varying views on the subject.

All three however agreed there is a lot more to be done in that department if Ghana is to be taken serious as an emerging fashion powerhouse.

Fashion 101 returns on Africa Magic Entertainment on Thursday, 5pm as well as on GHOne on Sunday, 3pm.

Fashion 101 is produced for television by Reverb GH and Emerald Paradise.
