Tonight, myself alongside industry leaders in design and fashion will be meeting at Shoreditch House to discuss the movement towards building trade and transformative change in Africa by elevating the perception of design and quality of works from the continent.
The aim of the evening is to make a positive and measurable change through the collaboration and assembly of those with an invested interest in exploring the challenges and solutions associated with elevating the quality of design and trade opportunities in Africa.
If you have any questions are ideas you would like to propose, email, comment or tweet me and I will do my best to ask the panel!
