Special report: All set for Fashion Week Gambia!

Fashion Weekend Gambia is spearheaded by a conglomerate of women within the field of fashion and arts, who wish to create a platform that aspires to bring young designers and creative artists together to showcase creativity with the ambition to introduce a more vibrant and promising fashion industry. Now in its second year, we are looking to host yet another weekend of fashion events in December. 

We intend to do not just a fashion show, but provide a platform in which African-based African designers who have successfully launched their brands in the international markets to appear as guest speakers and provide our young designers with the knowledge and know how to succeed in their crafts. This will draw international publicity for Gambian brands and will in essence contribute to micro industry thus also encourage the spirit of entrepreneurship with our women and youth. We also would like to invite distinguished buyers to come and view the talents in today’s Africa. 

This year’s initiative will help raise awareness about child sex tourism. The commercial sexual exploitation of children is now a growing issue to which The Gambia is not immune. It is important that we realize and accept that the practice of child sex tourism can affect the economic, social, and moral integrity of our country. 

Activities around the event include:

Day 1: A display of elegance and exquisite styles with Gambia’s biggest designers. 

Day 2: Rep on The Runway is a street show showcasing street and casual wear. 

Day 3: The third and last day of Fashion Weekend Gambia is a family day out at a beach restaurant where designers will be showcasing beach and summer wear. 

Our event has been sponsored by Global Properties, Trust Bank and Western Union.
