CONGRATULATIONS! Jorna Fatoumata Saho named Best Gambian Designer of the Year

After successfully launching her company, Chocolate Sisters, Jorna Fatoumata Saho was rewarded at the recently held InterFace Gambia TV Awards Gala Night in England.

The wife of Jali Lamin Saho was named Best Gambian Designer of the Year. She is the first European-born to win such a prestigious award.

Jorna told What’s On-Gambia: “I felt very honoured to be nominated for the Best Gambian Designer Award and I can’t still believe that I actually won it!”

She added: “A big thank you to everyone who voted for me, to everyone who supported me since I started designing, sewing and selling. InShaaAllah, 2015 will be a bigger and better year for me and my business.”

Jorna was born in Holland and first visited The Gambia as a child with her family. She fell in love with the country. Her husband, Jali Lamin Saho is one of the famous young kora players in The Gambia.

Congratulations, Jorna!
