Our focus, as the name suggests, is fashion: we work to shine a spotlight on African fashion designers and the facilitate their entrée into the German and European fashion markets. Our online presence is complemented by a range of events and fashion happenings offline: runway shows, exhibitions and fashion panels, to name a few. We connect fashion designers with buyers, fashion players and the press, providing them the opportunity to showcase their work to an international audience and establishing business networks.
