Hi Peter! I'm planning a trip around Africa later this year to meet and work with ethical fashion producers as a sort of fact-finding mission before I eventually set up my own business. I have been working in production and product development for luxury fashion brands in the UK (currently Burberry) for the past 6 years and I am passionate about finding ways to increase production of fashion in Africa. My plan is to travel and spend some time working with a variety of projects/producers to see how we can all link-up and work together. Do you know of any great projects or suppliers worth visiting, or anyone who would appreciate an extra member of staff for few months? Many thanks, Nicola.

Hey Peter.

Yes, I've met Jo in Kenya and plan on going to see her work in Diani when I'm back.

Please do let me know if you're through LDN while I"m here, if not, hopefully our paths will cross in East l'Afrique!!

Hi Peter, Im trying to get these African tartans woven/printed in cotton locally so that they can be used to make a range of affordable products.

Are you interested in the idea of an East African fashion show?

Peter!!!

So great to see you on here, and welcome to the Network!!

It is serendipitous that you are the one who introduced me to EFF years back in Kampala.
I'm currently now in London working for EFF for the summer...I'll be back in Africa in September...let's stay in touch!

Meg
