Abstract:

This visual guide to contemporary African fashion, compiled with an ethical perspective, exists to disseminate knowledge of what African has to offer in the field of fashion and textiles, bringing together designers, design companies, ethical manufacturers, and more, all with an African connection. The idea for it arose as a result of the author's MA degree, alongside the creation of the social enterprise AfricaFashionGuide, with the aim of promoting awareness of the potential within the global fashion and textiles industry for active trade with African suppliers and manufacturers. The fashion brands showcased in this book represent a kaleidoscope of contemporary African fashion.
