Fashion lovers in Kigali can’t wait to attend the Gorilla Fashion Week 2023. The event will bring together fashion enthusiasts to celebrate made in Rwanda and made in Africa to the world. The event which has started today, it will feature both young and upcoming local fashion designers as well as models.

The most important part of the Gorilla Fashion Week 2023 that brings curiosity to the fashion lovers around in Kigali, is the team and participants behind this event. Among them includes the international model  Eveline Gonzenbach who is also among the guest speakers of Today's session that will take place at the IPRC Kigali. 

“This is a great opportunity for the fashion industry in Rwanda to receive a professional international fashion, beauty, and lifestyle model like Ms Eveline Gonzenbach. I believe all those young and upcoming models will run a lot from her which will guide them for their future contracts” Placide Ngirinshuti told the RCFS’s Media.

 According to the information from the organizers of the Gorilla Fashion Week 2023, the international model will be part of their first edition scheduled this Saturday, 30 December at Century Park Hotel.  During the interview with the RCFS's Media, we have asked Eveline Gonzenbach some questions about the fashion industry in general and what her expectations are from the Gorilla Fashion Week 2023. 

Journalist: Can you share your fashion experience?

I started my modeling career in 2019 in Dubai. I am very proud to have worked for renowned brands such as Huda Beauty, Emirates Palace, La Marquise Jewelry, Ekadot Boutique, Moniritta Design, Park Hyatt and Grand Hyatt, and Neoque Magazine.

In summer 2022 I have been selected to join the famous Coco Rocha Model Camp in New York. Models of all age groups and origins intended to learn the secrets of modeling by Coco Rocha herself. This experience was something I did to expand my knowledge in modeling, but also to go out of my comfort zone, gain more confidence, and become a better version of myself.

Journalist:  What are your expectations from the Gorilla Fashion Week 2023?

My expectations from the Gorilla Fashion Week are high, given the incredible talent and creativity that I have witnessed within the fashion community in Kigali.
My hope is that the event will not only inspire fashion enthusiasts but also contribute to the growth and recognition of Rwanda’s fashion industry on a global scale. I anticipate an atmosphere of creativity, collaboration and celebration of the unique spirit that defines fashion in Kigali.

Ultimately, I expect Gorilla Fashion Week to exceed expectations, leaving a lasting impact on both the local fashion scene and the broader industry.

Journalist:  What is your role at the event?

As a model, I am the face behind the brand. The women/men who walk the runway have the power to inspire editors, buyers, and fashion lovers to covet a particular piece. My hope is to contribute to the success and vibrancy of Gorilla Fashion Week 2023.

Journalist:  Have you met local fashion designers and models?

Yes, I had the pleasure of collaborating with the talented designer from Umuheto Fashion House. Working closely with him was a remarkable experience that allowed me to immerse myself in their unique and inspiring designs.

Additionally, through various castings and runway trainings, I had the opportunity to connect and build relationships with a diverse array of models. These interactions have not only expanded my professional network but have also fostered a sense of camaraderie within the industry. It’s a testament to the collaborative spirit that defines events like Gorilla Fashion Week, where designers and models come together to create something truly extraordinary.

Journalist:  What can you tell fashion lovers who want to buy tickets to attend the Gorilla Fashion Week 2023?

I would encourage fashion lovers to secure their tickets for Gorilla Fashion Week for an unforgettable experience. The event not only showcases designs and trends but also provides a platform to support local talent and sustainable fashion initiatives.

It’s not just a fashion show, it’s an opportunity to be part of a cultural movement shaping the future of fashion in Kigali and beyond.

 Journalist: Do you have a message to share with fashion lovers in Africa?

Absolutely! I would like to encourage all fashion lovers to embrace and celebrate the incredible diversity of styles and cultures across the continent. Africa’s fashion is more than just clothing; it’s a reflection of heritage, creativity, and innovation.

Let’s continue to support local designers, sustainable practices, and inclusive representations in fashion. Together we can amplify Africa’s influence on the global fashion stage and inspire a more diverse and vibrant industry for generations to come.
