This year, GFW will feature the Indigenous fashion display. Trafficking In Persons (TIP), domestic violence and people living with disabilities are the causes GFW will be highlighting this year.
Guyana Fashion Week is the second longest fashion event in the Caribbean and the team very thankful for the support since 2007.
