Introducing CIAFE Advisory Board Member - Nisha Kanabar

Nisha Kanabar is a curator and storyteller; and the founder of Industrie Africa. A native Tanzanian, Kanabar graduated from Parsons School of Design in New York and went on to forge a career in luxury fashion and publishing. With over a decade of experience at renowned industry names, she held formative positions at the editorial and commercial departments of American Vogue, Vogue India, and in the Middle East (now Vogue Arabia). Her experience across international markets fueled a desire to channel her work into her home continent’s contemporary and luxury designer market, with a special focus on diversity, digitisation, and storytelling. Nisha’s unique perspective allows her to frame the conversation around African fashion through a uniquely global lens. She currently resides in Dar es Salaam, Tanzania—whilst her work regularly takes her across the continent and around the world.
