Fashion Forward – 2 Nov

African Textile Emporium is a start-up clothing design, clothing manufacturing, collaborative platform, and fashion event company.

The name of the event Fashion Forward was derived from our desire of wanting to move the local fashion industry forward. Our intention is to provide up-and-coming designers and creatives in the fashion industry a platform to showcase and exhibit their work. Furthermore, the event is intended to fast-track designers and to grow their brand awareness and retail capabilities by creating events and markets geared at achieving this goal. The event is also intended to create an environment of learning by providing networking sessions and workshop opportunities where guest speakers can speak to out attending guests and designers and share their insight into the fashion industry.

Beats and Eats will provide the after-party!
