The Ethical Fashion Initiative works with African designers to promote local fashion talent, develop the industry on the continent and improve export capacities. We showcase the creativity and talent of African Designers, as well as encouraging manufacturing with African artisans.
The Ethical Fashion Initiative’s African Designer programme first launched in 2013 and operated out of Ghana. In Ghana, the Ethical Fashion Initiative has helped set up a garment production centre where quality clothing and accessories can be produced by African artisans, currently known as the PDC.
EFI is also partnering with the African Fashion Fund on the development of The Impact Fund for African Creatives (IFFAC), which was set up in 2018 to increase access to finance for African designers as well as developing business and market skills.
