WEEKEND GAMBIA (FWG) has announced that it will be joining force with Coco
Ocean hotel to host the highly anticipated annual fashion event where they will
be using the beautiful backdrop of the hotel to unveil their 7th edition from
7th-8th December 2018.
It said their talented home and international designers will be exploring the unique creative theme “AFROFUTURISM” an innovative trend that will not have just the designers but their audience at large exploring and continue the conversation between fashion, technology, Pan Africanism and connecting with the African diaspora.
“This year, our brand ambassador “Medina” embodies what we, as a brand push forward for all our youth beneficiaries. She’s an advocate for natural hair and skin and takes pride in her African heritage.”
After 6 fantastic years of unparalleled success, FWG still remains with the mission of promoting home grown talent and The Gambia as an international fashion hub. We also take great pride in providing training and mentorship for Designers, Models, makeup artists and event organizers from The Gambia whilst providing a platform for international designers particularly those from West Africa and the Diaspora.
“We still have a desire to push creativity and ingenuity whilst engaging both the private and public sectors to invest in our Youths. We believe in The Gambia and show this belief by providing FWG for the world to see and admire the beautifully crafted designs made by Gambians.”
FWG has not been absent in the formulation of a unique aesthetic for the smiling coast. As we’re in the age of new Gambia, it’s only fitting that this continues to brand, promote and sell a fashion that’s distinctly ours to the world. “We look forward to continuing our great relationship with all that supported and believe in this vision. Therefore showing up at our events is to push this cause. See you there!”
