We are extremely excited to announce our event sponsors for our upcoming annual conference! We have a lot in store for you and it could not happen without our key industry partners.

C&A Foundation have confirmed they will be one of our sponsors for our 2017 edition of Fashion Africa Conference on May 25/26th.

We are happy to partner with the foundation due to their ethos for doing good in the fashion industry. They believe fashion has the power to improve the lives of the men and women behind our clothes. Like Africa Fashion Guide they believe fashion can be a force for good. Especially in developing nations. Their mission is to transform the industry to make that happen. And we can’t think of a better foundation to support our event this year.

With our theme Africa. Fashion’s Future we needed event partners who are forward thinking and C&A Foundation is one of them. Having just announced the launch of Fashion For Good (of which they are founding partners for), we just had to make that connection especially with our future plans for AFG. So why don’t you join us and get to meet the team too!

This recently launched global initiative was created literally to make all fashion good. They tell us that Fashion for Good enables the daring invention and widespread adoption of good fashion practice with ‘The Five Goods’: Good Materials, Good Economy, Good Energy, Good Water and Good Lives.

“The Five Goods represent an aspirational framework we can all use to work towards a world in which we do not take, make, dispose, but rather take, make, remake.” William McDonough, McDonough Innovation

C&A is a corporate foundation which shares the same heritage, values and approach to sustainability as top European retailer C&A which was founded in 1841 by Dutch brothers Clemens and August Brenninkmeijer. And they work closely together to find the best ways to drive change.

With over 60,000 employees, millions of customers, as well as factories and suppliers in markets across the world, C&A brings another dimension to the work of their foundation providing them with first-hand insight into sustainability projects such as their work helping farmers grow organic cotton.

So now they are here to support us on our mission to be a catalyst in the industry, to help change perceptions of the fashion and textile industry in Africa and to ask those in Africa working in garment design and textile manufacturing what THEY think and need and introduce what is happening in the global fashion industry such as 3D printing/knitting and circular fashion to the African fashion story.

The 2017 Fashion Africa Conference will focus on Future Africa and aims to be part of this revolution. Question is will you join us on this journey? The foundation of one of the world’s top retailers believes in our mission and has put their support and their money where their mouth is…now it is over to you.
