The African fashion luxury industry is still in its infancy, but it is growing rapidly. In the last few years, we have seen several African fashion designers and brands emerge onto the global stage. While most African luxury fashion brands are still based in Africa, we are seeing an increasing number of them expand into international markets.

Building a Conscious & Inclusive Fashion Industry & Movement in Africa

DATE: 23 March 2023; 14h00- 15h30; CTICC 2

Beyond just the ability to make or break trends, fashion designers and companies can influence how people think and feel about themselves. In recent years, there has been an increased focus on making the industry more conscious of its impact on the world. There really is no better time than now to get involved with the discussion of how Africa can become conscious of its impact when it comes to fashion.
