In September 2016, as Africa Fashion Guide turns five years old and therefore for their 5th year anniversary Fashion Africa Conference event, they are extremely pleased to announce a cohort of professional industry speakers which includes our PR girl Cynthia Tabe!

The full day Fashion Africa Conference event will be set out over 2 large rooms on the top floor of the Richmix venue in London. Titled The African Market, it will consist of TedX style keynote speeches in the morning, followed by afternoon panel discussions with international industry leaders and a trade expo dubbed the F.A.T.E (Fashion Africa Trade Expo).


So if you are a fashion retailer, fashion designer, student, journalist or fashion business interested in sourcing and/or producing in Africa, with a strong, active interest in sustainability and ethical business practice – then you cannot miss this conference. The full day seminar event will act as a means to discuss and promote the full supply chain of African Fashion Design, Textiles, and Manufacturing and will be centred around the sub-topics Sustainability, African Fashion Manufacturing, Responsible Sourcing, Africa’s Retail Market and the new target consumer market – The Growth of the African Designer market. It will be the key platform for engagement and for social forum for all those attending.

This event is a must attend event; there will be a mix of press, brands and industry influencers and insiders with a mutual involvement and/or vested interest in elevating African trade, design and production, and who want to be part of the wider solution to raise Africa as a trailblazer in quality design and production. REGISTER NOW

There 3 afternoon panel discussions will focus as follows:


This panel will look how far Africa has come in order to look forward – focus is on production, sustainability and the African fashion message of value


This panel which will include our PR girl Cynthia will look at the message we are getting from Africa today. With focus on the African consumer, the retail stratosphere – standalone stores, pop ups to online retailing and ecommerce and the role of design within this.


This panel will look at where things are going in African fashion – from trends, textile technology, to entrepreneurship, manufacturing options and production business parks to streetstyle, arts and the marketplace as a whole. How the African market appeals more and more to investors abroad for new business ventures. Africa is also an opportunity for existing businesses abroad to open up similar businesses there. Media and researchers are also recognising this and we discuss what angle they are taking and the opportunity Africa has to offer.
