GWIIN recognizes the importance of a sustainable environment. We continue to demonstrate our commitment in a variety of ways. One major way is by the staging of the GWIIN Adebayo Jones Eco-Friendly Fashion Show.
In 2006, GWIIN entered into a partnership with the celebrity fashion stylist and designer, Adebayo Jones, to help promote and highlight eco friendly innovative trends by innovative women designers in order to create social change and respect for the environment. Over the years, the GWIIN Adebayo Jones Partnership has been responsible for a number of successfully staged Eco-Friendly Fashion Shows.
