Social Enterprise Africa Fashion Guide brings our FASHION AFRICA Conference back to London this February.

 

This evening event will take place on Wednesday 26th February and will consist of a panel discussion with international industry leaders entitled Fashion Africa 2014. This yearly conference acts as a means to discuss and promote the full supply chain of African Fashion Design, Textiles, and Manufacturing and thus communicate this to a larger, global audience.

This event will include 2 panel discussions with contribution from fashion 
professionals and industry experts who will discuss and debate on the topics:


ETHICAL . FASHION . AFRICA

Themes include:

1)     Sustainable Fashion Made in Africa - Sourcing cotton and local fabrics, Fairtrade issues, local production, artisans. AFG African Cotton Campaign. How important is African craft to the luxury market and Africa’s fashion industry? What is the future of global textiles and Africa’s part it in? and more...

 

2)    The Future of African Fashion – the importance of Fashion shows, media, press and marketing to bring light to African fashion into the global fashion industry. Is it just a fad?
