THE fixture on every discerning fashionistas’ December calendar, Fashion Weekend Gambia, returns on 4th & 5th December for its fourth edition.
Yet again, guests have the opportunity to discover a new batch of Gambian talent, and to take an active part in this unique concept.
The event is one of very few Fashion Weeks where the audience can actually engage with showcased designers, ordering bespoke collections directly from the Creator.
This two-day event is not to be missed by anyone in the SeneGambian region who shares a passion for Fashion, Culture or Music.
Favourites Ziza and Yaws, amongst other FWG regulars will be returning, setting the pace for newcomers receiving their first dose of the Fashion Weekend Gambia treatment.
The organisers boost the profiles of local arts, Designers and Models in a bid to boost the small country’s Fair Trade profile and Fashion Tourism Industry.
