It’s a Senegalese TV show, a designer competition almost like Project Runway, but exciting, fun and very competitive. It started two weeks ago, the first episode is on already on youtube, and we enjoyed what we saw, you can watch it below. It’s in French with no subtitles so you can read about it below so you know what is going on.
There are 9 contestants and every week a designer gets eliminated by the judges. Not only that, but every week they judges will also select the best designer. There are 3 members of the jury which featured a Senegalese model who made success in Paris and featured in many international runways shows and magazines, Fatou Marana Noba. Also is the editor of AMINA magazine Charlotte Seck, and a former Senegalese model, current ‘It Girl’ and popular fashion figure, Valerie Diouf.
The show will last for nine weeks, the winner receives 2 millions cfa (1645.46 dollars) and a trip to Malaysia.
Every week they will invite a new member of the jury, which will be relatively linked to the challenge of the week
The winner must be the most creative, trendy, and the commercial designer of the lot.
They are coached by a great stylist and costume designer Oumou Sy who give tips and teaches them how to improve. We will also like that thank a participating contestant Al-Habib Sagaf for enlightening us on this show.
