Young fashion - made in Senegal

Fashion show in dakar

A fashion show in Dakar, at which five young Senegalese designers show extravagant creations, made of Getzner-brocade.

"Soirée Autrichienne"

In May this year, a “Soirée Autrichienne” took place at the Hotel Terrou-Bi in Dakar, the capital of Senegal. One of the important parts of this “Austrian Evening” – designed and planned by the Austrian Embassy – was a special fashion show sponsored by Getzner Textil.

Germany’s most well known male model Alpha Dia – under whose patronage the fashion show was held – worked with five young Senegalese stylists to tailor modern models made of Getzner brocade, which were showcased at the event. The aim was to support the up-and-coming tailors and provide them with a platform where they can prove their skills. As a result, cool and particularly extravagant models were created that reflect the zeitgeist of young Senegal.

We are very pleased that our brocade is also very popular with young designers and that we were able to support this great project in this way.

The models were perfectly presented by Stefan Kleinowitz – in the following slideshow we present an interesting selection.
