Aims & Research
This one day is aiming to bring together fashion designers in Nairobi and Kenya to reflect on their work, business and cultural practices as well as their cultural and creative designs.
With our research we hope to improve the understanding of the work of fashion designers and the connection between culture, creativity and the economy.
