SAVE THE DATE! Fashion Africa Voices London this October!

This October during Black History Month, we are bringing you our Fashion Africa Voices London edition.

This particular Fashion Africa Voices London edition is a big one as we have tried for a while to grab the attentions of a certain Designer who has been in the industry for a good season and who is excited to share her experiences setting up in Ghana and working with local producers on her collections.

So we are proud to invite you to join us as we have an EXCLUSIVE up close and personal discussion with Phyllis Taylor of SIKA Designs


  • how she set up and built a fashion label which she produces in Ghana
  • how she brought a new aesthetic to wax print with a focus on producing quality ‘made in Africa’ garments for the international market
  • how she successfully incorporated social and environmental responsibilities to the core of her garment production
  • why she believes paying fair wages, creating employment and making a meaningful difference within the Ghanaian community for her brand is key for business
  • how she worked with buyers and retailers to sell her product on ASOS, The Vogue Talents Corner (Yoox) and Beams Japan.
  • And all about how she managed to secure a colab with best selling author and broadcaster Afua Hirsch!
