The Industry: Africa Fashion Guide

10 Jan

Labels like Suno and LemLem have been instrumental in placing the aesthetic of the African continent firmly on the radar. Soon, a new website will serve as the link between the fashion industry in the UK and EU and African fashion designers and textile producers. Founded by fashion designer Jacqueline Shaw, Africa Fashion Guide’s new website launches this week and will serve as a business platform to promote the work of designers across the continent. Shaw has also written a book profiling the work of Africa’s most talented designers, called Fashion Africa: a Visual Overview of Contemporary African Fashion, which we are adding to our must-read list. You can purchase the book here and keep an eye out this week for the launch of the website.
