    Save the date: December 19th, for The Bamenda Fashion Week!

    The Bamenda Fashion Week is a professional-International platform aimed at valorizing the fashion and design industry in the city of Bamenda, Cameroon and Africa.  It brings together industry actors from around the world and serves as a ground for networking and collaboration, with the goal of hurling our home industry forward. It recognizes the works of thriving actors from all facets of the fashion and design industry including: Designers, models, photographers, make-up artists etc and celebrates the contribution of individuals and stake holders towards the growth of the industry

    It also has as objective to promote and expose our homemade fashion products and actors on the international scene, to create a market for them globally and to establish channels for the world to savor what Cameroon has got in terms of fashion and design. The Bamenda Fashion Week is here to raise the bar and enhance the fashion and entertainment culture of the city of Bamenda and Cameroon as a whole.

    To attain our objectives and to set the standards in the fashion industry, we’ve carried out a host of activities within and without the country.
    We began with two casting calls for models; 54 models showed up in Bamenda for the casting call for the North West and West regions. 16 of them were selected to represent the Bamenda Fashion Week brand. The casting of models for the Littoral, Center and South West Regions held in Buea in mid-September where 53 models showed up. 19 of them were selected as Bamenda Fashion Week models. Of the 35 models selected, 15 will walk the runway on the launch of the event on December 19. Bamenda Fashion Week uses every model for diverse purposes ranging from runway to editorial, commercial, glamour, etc. All Bamenda Fashion Week’s models can be viewed on its website (http://bamendafashionweek.com/models)

    Models selected represent different regions across the country and range from 7 to 30 years old. As a platform promoting the growth of the industry, all models of Bamenda Fashion Week do not end as runway models for the event of 2016. The platform fosters the growth of these models through an agreement reached with them where they benefit from lifetime material, networking and technical expertise from the organizers of the Bamenda Fashion Week, and wherein the organizers agree to treat them with several privileges, among which are subsequent unanimous selections for fashion events carrying the Bamenda Fashion Week brand.

    A call for designer casting was also made in August. Over 100 designers from all over the continent responded, and the Bamenda Fashion Week’s team of judges went through all applications. Applicants had the possibility of impressing the judges through pictures of their designs and a presentation of their experiences as designers. After a tough selection process, the judges were satisfied to come up with a list of 15 designers from 4 different countries on the continent (Cameroon, Nigeria, Guinea-Bissau and Senegal). 5 of these 15 would be competing for a coveted price. The list of designers selected can be viewed on the website (http://bamendafashionweek.com/designers).

    A casting call for makeup artists was also made. 5 makeup artists would provide their skills to enhance the world-class event to be held on the 19th of December.

    The organizers of the Bamenda Fashion Week, Miss Africa Texas and Olympian House International, look forward to raising the bar of fashion and entertainment in Africa as promised, and the show on the 19th of December would only be a testament of this.
