Advancing and decentralising fashion education and research in Africa to enhance Africa’s fashion ecosystem to spur sustainable development and propel economic growth.
CIAFE is a think-and-do tank dedicated to advancing and decentralising fashion education and research in Africa to enhance Africa’s fashion ecosystem and propel sustainable development and economic growth.
We have two core commitments:
Our organisation is committed to collaborating with educational institutions to decentralise and innovate the fashion curriculum and develop independent knowledge products, skills development programmes and corporate training with a core focus on closing the skills gap to build talent, future-proof the workforce, and meet the demands of the industry.
Our second commitment is to develop groundbreaking research and analysis to provide stakeholders with the required knowledge and solutions to advance the African Fashion Ecosystem, create employability opportunities, spur sustainable development, and drive economic growth.
We are a catalyst for impactful development and creating a more responsible African Fashion industry.
