Fashion Weekend Gambia is an annual celebration of afro inspired fashion that comes around towards every end of the year. The event came to fill the gap that has been open far too long when it comes to showcasing Gambian fashion and its brilliance, difference and distinct nature.
This year not being an exception still has a sense of newness and even bigger aim, especially with the backing of this year’s Face of FWG, Maimuna Jobe, an experienced runway model who has graced the FWG runway since it’s inaugural outing.
Improvements have been astounding from year to year and this upcoming one will be a crowning of all the ones that have passed. The 1st and 2nd of December 2017 FWG will unveil this beautifully put together concept from some of the smartest and innovative fashion designers and minds behind the event.
The event will be held at Coral Beach Hotel and Spa (formerly known as Sheraton) where over 20 designers are expected to showcase their collections this year – the highlight of the event itself is the veteran fashion designer, the King of Dashiki, Ziza of Ziza Creations. Amongst them too is Phuzion, widely known for perlage and intricately laced bridal wear. PAJA, one the Gambia’s leading brands will be launching his first all-male collection for Fashion Weekend Gambia after the critical acclaim of his international menswear collections.
Brands new to the FWG runway include Sunday Beach, YobAwa Fashion and Romzy.
Orgainzers urge the audience to come early as the show will start at 7pm sharp. Those who come late are likely to miss out on a chance to win Brussels Airlines international flights to Dakar and Europe. In the meantime click on www.fashionweekendgambia.com for more chances to win amazing prizes.
