Gambian culture is so diverse and wide that the various ethnic groups are truly represented through language, food, sound, dance and of course, ‘Fashion’. African fashion will continue to be the most vibrant of all, and Gambia, with traces that encompass the cultures and traditions of surrounding countries such as Senegal, Mauritania, Guinea, Ghana, Sierra Leone, Nigeria, Mali, represent a whole large amount of the proud rich fashion vigour of the sunshine continent.

In The Event: Designers will have the rare opportunity to exhibit their fashion designing prowess by parading models dressed in their very own creation as well as an individual fashion contest to portray various fashion styles of every Gambian/Senegalese tribe.

Live traditional music (made out of SeneGambian instruments) will transport parts of the fashion exhibition and contest. London-based famous and growing artists will lead the musical entertainment bill through the three-night show. Traditional cum acrobatic dance sessions as well as a styled beauty pageant will paint the event in their own exclusive colour.

A number of London’s famous fashion designers and fashion models will attend the event as special guests.
