The rise and rise of African fashion

IC Publications "The past five years have seen an unprecedented explosion and new dynamism of the African fashion and fashion design industry on both the continent and the world stage. Gone are the days when New York, London, Milan and Paris symbolised the only fashion capitals – today Johannesburg, Lagos, Nairobi and Dakar are just some of the big African fashion destinations setting powerful industry tongues wagging. But there is more to this revolution of NEW African fashion and design and as to why in all corners of the earth today, there is someone who wants a piece of African cloth in their closet. In this Special Edition we invite you to join New African Woman as we celebrate the recent leaps and bounds of African fashion, design, beauty and its rich textiles."
