THE SUN NIGERIA PARTNERS WITH AFWL 2016

to present

The London Conference on Globalizing African Fashion

Nigeria’s highest selling newspaper has teamed up with Africa Fashion Week London to bring another dimension of awareness to the globalization of African Fashion.
Africa Fashion Week London 2016 will host a conference designed to attract foreign investments to the continent’s fashion industry, in addition to the familiar catwalk shows and exhibition.
In his words of support, the Chief Executive Officer and Editor-in-Chief of The Sun Publishing Limited, Eric Osagie, says;
“… it is time the African fashion industry is taken more seriously as an income and job generator, as well as a sector capable of weathering the ups and downs of the African economy.
Africa has huge potentials of becoming one of the world’s apparel and textile milieu. But to achieve this, significant international investment is needed to build the industrial infrastructure required.
At the London conference, we aim to enhance the value of African fashion industry on the world stage especially as regards youth development and job creation, attract investments and create avenues for the public-private sector partnership negotiations to create symbiotic relationships that will mutually benefit investors and stakeholders.
London is one of the major fashion capitals of the world. It is a great honor for us and the African continent to have a professional international platform to promote African fashion industry, Africa heritage, African Values, African Textiles through AFWL.
Africa is already generating global brands with value chains. This event will obviously revitalize the demand for traditional craftsmanship and creating jobs.”
