F.A.S.T. GHANA 2019
The Ghana edition of our series of immersive fashion business mission trips.
Our sourcing trips are focused on connecting the fashion business world with the producers and artisans in Africa. Our initiative is focused on development and so we aim to build direct relationships with the fashion design community and artisan focused social enterprises throughout the African continent.
These trips have been tailored specifically for design industry professionals as well as sourcing specialists and product developers. Being practical and hands-on sourcing trips, the interaction provided with those on the ground and the chance to network with those in the field, allows for real business opportunities. We have curated a group of individual businesses and organisations to partake.
