About the event
In this conversation, Ken discusses his book and the attention it draws to the potential of Africa’s budding luxury industry as a catalyst for economic transformation and the advancement of Africa’s fabled cultural renaissance. His work has been published in the Journal of Design, Business and Society. He is very knowledgeable in critical issues of African luxury quantitatively and practically.
The first part of the book looks at Africa's rich cultural heritage and place in the network of global fashion. The second part steers the reader into the spectacular world of African fashion today. It showcases a carefully curated set of the continent's most dynamic brands and, through interviews with prominent and inspiring designers, offers rare insight into their ethos and design practice.
