Organisers from Runway Productions International are putting the final touches on what would be the biggest week long international fashion extravaganza ever hosted in The Gambia. The original and first ever Fashion Week will take place Feb.2013.It’s made solely to promote Gambia and African Talents worldwide.
The event is the brainchild of Aysha Jones-Ceesay, a highly celebrated Swedish-based Gambian fashion stylist, a manager, public relations agent and chief executive officer of the Runway Productions International.
The Week is expected to put the country’s fashion and entertainment industry on a great spotlight given the calibre of people involved in the organisation of the event. As well as international designers that will be making their way to the Smiling Coast of Africa. Organisers hope that TGFW will make a giant leap in enhancing the country’s fashion industry, as well as promote its tourism sector.
The Week is particularly expected to spice up the country’s 48th Independence Anniversary, given the fact that both events will take place in the same month. The Runway Productions International CEO said she expects nothing less than a standard fashion week that the country has for long been awaiting to host.
