Fashion Weekend Gambia is on schedule to celebrate their 8th annual fashion weekend event due to take place on the 6th and 7th of December at Coral Beach Hotel (formerly Sheraton) with grand ambiance as international fashionistas make Gambia their runway for the weekend. The theme for this year’s event is “AFROREVOLUTION.”
Fashion Weekend Gambia is the biggest fashion event in The Gambia, dating back 2012 and spearheaded by phenomenal women within the fashion industry and arts. It serves as a creative platform for emerging designers and has provided an initial glimpse into the fashion industry for many Gambian designers. Fashion Weekend Gambia aims to create and celebrate a sustainable fashion industry, through capacity building workshops for models and designers.
The two-night event will give Gambian and international designers a platform to exhibit their trendy collections on the runway as a stepping stone to promote their creativity and entrepreneurism to a worldwide audience.
Fashion Weekend Gambia is determined and dedicated to change the narrative by helping homegrown talent who are doing well in the fashion industry by giving them the recognition they truly deserve.
