Any writing on those who contributed to the promotion of Gambia tourism industry must include places such as Secret Fashion House, which is in the spotlight. Sohna's Secret Fashion House which is located at shop No. 9 Bertil Harding Highway in the Senegambia area consists of a uni-sex fashion, hair and beauty salon, nails (manicure and pedicure) as well as a barbing shop and mini-restaurant.

In a brief chat with Entertainment recently, Sohna Jammeh, the proprietress of Secret Fashion House, said Secret Fashion started operating, since in 2005, as a small fashion shop. She added that having such a Fashion House within the tourism industry is another encouragement. Madam Jammeh who has a bachelors degree in marketing and management has contributed immensely in the socio-economic development of the country. She noted that one area of development of the Gambia is tourism.

The proprietress further explained that Secret Fashion House is located within a multi-cultural sector, adding that this has motivated her business. My plan in the future is like transforming each department, so that we will actually branch out. Sohna Jammeh has endeared herself to many due to her managerial skills, good public rapport and excellent relationship with stakeholders in the industry. "We believe in customer service," she added. Secret Fashion opens from 8 am to 8 pm. For any information, one can reach them on 220-9900349 or 220-7780020.
