The East Africa Trade and Investment Hub has entered into a partnership agreement with the American Apparel & Footwear Association to ensure U.S. brands and retailers’ goods are manufactured in accordance with best-in-class business practices and operations in East Africa.
The agreement, signed by the Hub and AAFA outside the African Pavilion at the Magic trade show in Las Vegas, launches the East Africa Cotton, Textile and Apparel Initiative to establish sustainable workforce development programs and institutionalize environmental, social, labor and worker safety best practices in the region.
The first retrospective of Dior in the U.S. has landed at the Denver Art Museum — and though the exhibition is a continuation of the 70th-anniversary display that bowed in Paris in 2017, “Christian Dior, Couturier du Rêve,” the DAM show offers an entirely new look at the legacy of the house, and its relationship to the world, writes @leighen .

Norwegian musician Anna of the North (a.k.a. Anna Lotterud ) has had a rapid rise in the U.S., thanks to her song “Lovers” which was included in this summer’s Netflix hit “To All The Boys I’ve Loved Before.” Next up, a show at Terminal 5. “I’ve never actually done promo or anything in the U.S. before so it’ll be interesting to see,” she tells @leighen . “Because of the Internet I’ve always had American listeners but never been here [playing music].” 📸: @jilliansollazzo #wwdeye
