The OVC Expo Gala is set to light up Maryland on May 6, with the highly anticipated The JW Show, an annual fashion extravaganza founded by Jeffrey Wilson and a team of fashion enthusiasts in 2013. Recognized for its groundbreaking contributions to the fashion industry, The JW Show has been dedicated to fostering economic growth, reducing unemployment, and promoting Kenyan fashion on the global stage.
Over the years, The JW Show has successfully supported and economically sustained more than 10,000 young fashion professionals across 26 counties in Kenya. It has become a pioneering platform for creative fashion collaborations, bringing together an array of talented professionals, including fashion entrepreneurs, models, photographers, make-up artists, choreographers, stylists, bloggers, fashion magazine writers, editors, and cosmetic brands.
With its primary goal to develop the textile and clothing industry in Kenya, The JW Show has implemented county-to-county initiatives, offering creative training and mentorship programs. This approach has not only spurred economic development but also strengthened Kenya’s influence in the global fashion industry.
The upcoming OVC Expo Gala promises to be a night of glamour and excitement, showcasing the exceptional talents of The JW Show participants. As the event draws near, fashion enthusiasts and industry insiders alike eagerly await the latest trends and innovations that will be unveiled on this spectacular stage.
