It’s indeed brighter days for African established and emerging fashion designers, manufacturers and fashion retailers. Apart from this exciting opportunity to hit the international stage in style and pageantry, African designers will also be featured on the runway of the Miami Fashion Week for the first time ever in the fourteen year history of the Fashion Week.

And that is not the only novelty because for the first time in Nigeria, W-Art & Design has also announced a Fashion Business Seminar with the internationally acclaimed Mercedes Gonzalez (CEO of the New York based Global Purchasing Group, a fashion buying office representing over 200 stores in North and South America) and Professor Uche Ofodile, Professor, University of Arkansas School of Law, USA).

Designers should take advantage of these opportunities to grow their knowledge and broaden their horizons.
