Senegalese-Gambian Reginah Manneh is New Face of Africa Fashion Week London 2013
Well, this day is only getting better, as I was so proud to read that the winner of this year’s Face of African Fashion Week London is actually a fellow Senegalese and Gambian model by the name of Reginah Manneh. Way to go! As reported by FABmagazine.com, the 24 year-old model currently residing in the UK, is quite of a globe-trotter herself, raised in Sweden, Ivory Coast, Denmark, and having lived for some time in Dubai. She’s also reportedly an Interior Design student, and speaks English, Danish, French, Swedish and our beloved Senegal’s mother tongue Wolof.
Ms. Manneh has graced the runways of both the Los Angeles and Dubai Fashion Weeks, and will now in her new role represent the African Fashion Week London event in major entertainment and fashion events. The actual African Fashion Week London will be taking place from August 1-3 2013 in the UK. This event is set to attract over 100 designers and exhibitors, as one of the biggest fashion event around African and African-inspired fashion.
