In furtherance of Heineken Lagos Fashion Week’s vision to empower creatives within the African fashion industry, Fashion Focus Talks, an offshoot of Fashion Focus Africa, (the Lagos Fashion Week talent scouting and nurturing platform) will host a series of curated free talks to inspire collaboration amongst African creatives to achieve sustainable businesses and a thriving socio-economic industry.
This year, the theme, #BeyondCreativity, will address the future of fashion and the need to drive conversations beyond the beauty of craftsmanship to how more value can be created within the ecosystem. Fashion Focus Talks will visit 4 cities across Africa to hold talks in partnership with key stakeholders in each city.
Lagos will be the first city to host this year’s inaugural talks on 15th August, followed by Abuja on 20th August, Dakar 24th August and the talks will round up in Kigali on 31st August.
Fashion Focus Talks long term partners include Heineken, Style House Files and FetsWallet. Attendance to all Fashion Focus Talks is FREE but registration is required.
