Monrovia Fashion Week Kicks off After Christmas


Looking for a place to buy quality fashion materials ranging from dazzling apparels, jewelry, hair and makeup artistry and many more, you need not look further than attending the Monrovia Fashion Week (MFW), which kicks off right after Christmas Day.

In order to grant fashion lover their desire, the organizer has divided the event into three segments: December 26 and 27 as the fashion show where classic African couture will be featured from countries like Benin, Nigerian, Ghana, and not forgetting Liberia; the third day is set aside for shopping, meeting and greeting the designers and models as well as networking. Runway items will be on sale for purchase and fashion agencies can schedule to work together on future projects.

The MFW, which began three years ago, has grown to the extent that it is the biggest annual fashion event in Liberia that showcases new designers to fashion lovers, fashion journalists, photographers, stylists and retailers. MFW was recently nominated for The Best Fashion Event of the Year at the upcoming 2016 African Fashion Awards.

MFW founder, Marjean Sherman, said “records of the past editions are impressive and worthy of inclusion in your kind gesture, has propelled us to present to you something even better and of international settings.”

“This emphasizes to Liberia that fashion is in the income-generating creative industry. With the international TV crews, media personnel and bloggers coming to Monrovia just for this event, MFW is truly a culture and tourist event to be reckoned with,” Miss Sherman said.

Different from previous editions, this year’s fashion gig will have one male and one female chosen respectively as winners to feature on the first magazine cover, along with a future fashion editorial spread.

MFW will be featuring six local Liberian designers, and designers from the USA, Benin, Nigeria and Ghana. Models from Dubai (UAE), the USA, and South Africa will also accompany the many Liberian models recruited for the event.
