2 years ago today we launched AFG and my first book in London at the Africa Centre.

It has been an amazing 2 years with seminars in London, Nairobi, Canada and New York, we have presented our African Cotton Campaign at Vauxhall Fashion Scout during London Fashion Week, at Ghana Fashion Week and Africa Fashion Week Los Angeles, we have travelled to various countries in Africa and undertook numerous consultancy projects as well as that we have launched our FAB (Fashion Africa Business) Workshops in London due to increased demand.

We have so much to offer still and see our third year being one where we seriously get down to business, we will be launching our consultancy in a BIG way and we will be bringing our seminar back to London and that is just the start of things to come but sssshhh keep it to yourselves for now ­čÖé

But mostly we want to thank you our readers and supporters for being there and ask you to continue to share this journey with us. To all our contributors in London, Kenya, Nigeria, Liberia, Burundi, NYC, Sweden, Germany, South Africa AND MORE a big great THANK YOU! You have made Africa Fashion Guide what it is today.

Keep an eye out for this week as we push our promotion of African Cotton and FINALLY yes FINALLY the teeshirts are for sale! So if you are interested in getting your own then stay connected on our website.


Remmber we are on

Until next year lets keep promoting the full supply chain of Africa’s fashion and textile industry.


Best rgds,
