LONDON — African design talent will be given a step up into the international fashion spotlight thanks to Kisua, a new e-boutique and talent incubator.
“I think the world is looking at Africa right now,” Kisua founder and chief executive officer Samuel Mensah told WWD. “There’s a lot of focus on Africa in general, and we have a very rapidly growing middle class that can afford and seek out good-quality fashion; international fashion as well as African-inspired fashion. The talent has always been here, we just lacked a platform like this to show it to consumers.”
Alberta Ferretti's "Rainbow Week" sweaters are back. The designer closed her #MFW show with a few day-of-the-week sweaters, which first debuted on the catwalk last January as part of the pre-fall 2017 collection. #wwdfashion (📷: @delphineachard)
