|Heineken Lagos Fashion Week is pleased to announce the official kick-off of Fashion Business Series today. Since its inception, FBS has been instrumental in bringing together key stakeholders in fashion to facilitate conversations, exchange of ideas, and networking to develop the fashion industry.|
Fashion Business Series is pleased to welcome Francois Souchet as a keynote speaker this year. His work in the industry and now at the Ellen MacArthur Foundation has contributed greatly to redirecting the fashion industry to employ principles of circular economy, an approach that emphasises usage of renewable materials. Lagos Fashion Week has long been committed to the process of identifying sustainable fashion practices. This discussion will be an opportunity to hear from those at the helm of this movement within the industry.This first round of panel sessions will feature panelists speaking on unlocking some of the major challenges that the industry faces. Panelists include a cross-section of designers, fashion entrepreneurs and various creatives, to engage in discourse surrounding the employment of sustainable practices economically and environmentally, and addressing the education deficit on the continent. Each person will speak from a unique perspective and it promises to be a day filled with enlightening discussions.
Fashion Business Series will be held digitally this year. Interested parties are invited to register or kindly visit lagosfashionweek.ng for more information.
