Fashion Africa Conference by Africa Fashion Guide is back!
AfroNoire had the opportunity to attend Africa Fashion Guide's Fashion Africa Conference in February 2014, which featured a panel of designers and industry experts as they discussed the full supply chain of Africa Fashion Design Textiles and Manufacturing. This year around, the Fashion Africa Conference will be strategically held on Fashion Revolution Day on Friday 24th April 2015 and will further explore the same topics. The conference will be held over a day - a first for the social enterprise that is Africa Fashion Guide. This year's event titled 'An African Revolution', will feature a panel discussion with international industry leaders with the purpose of promoting the full supply chain of Africa Fashion Design, Textiles and Manufacturing to a global audience through the media. Topics to be discussed will be centred on sustainability, African fashion manufacturing, responsible sourcing, Africa’s retail market and the new target consumer market, the growth of the African designer market and Africa as new luxury.
Confirmed panellists include, Annegret Affolderbach of Choolips; Arieta Mujay of African Creative Collective; Beatrace Oola of Africa Fashion Day Berlin; Chris Springs of British Museum; Christine Bredehorst of Cotton Made in Africa; Daphne Kasambala of Sapelle online boutique; Kiran/Alae of Styled by Africa; Laduma Ngxokolo of Maxhosa; Nkwo Onwuka of NKWO and more.
If you are a fashion retailer, fashion designer, student or fashion business who is interested in sourcing and/or producing in Africa and have a strong, active interest in sustainability and ethical business practice, then be sure to register today for the opportunity to listen to the best industry leaders in African fashion in London, together in one place.
