Welcome to the Africa Fashion Exchange Event

The THE AFRICA FASHION EXCHANGE is a market intelligence, thought-leadership, business exchange and market access platform program driven by the KwaZulu-Natal Fashion Council. It is key to the survival of the Fashion Industry in the Province, the country and the continent. It is envisaged to solve the most inherent challenge of the industry, with most of South African and African designers not getting the necessary exposure and platforms to market their products, exchange business ideas and set the agenda for the fashion sector in sub-Saharan Africa. This has resulted in African designers being less competitive to designers found in Europe, Asia and, and hence contributing to the decline of the Industry.
