Presented by the African Fashion Research Institute

The African continent home to rich textile cultures and heritages which have positioned the continent’s fashion as a powerful force in the global fashion industry. When it comes to creating a fashion industry that prioritises sustainability and ethics, the local makers, creators, designers and artisans in African fashion ecosystems are leading the way. This high-level conversation unpacks the potential, challenges, and exciting steps in the right direction for the future of African fashion – and many lessons that the rest of the fashion world should learn from. [Jackie May and Priya Ramkissoon will introduce the Africa Textile Talks at the introduction of this session.]
