Africa Fashion Guide is the brainchild of Jacqueline Shaw a professional fashion designer, a visionary and an eco-entrepreneur with a big heart for Africa, Fashion and International Development. Africa Fashion Guide's main focus is to promote the African fashion and textile industry to the greater global textile industry. It is a one stop shop and platform for fashion professionals, students, retailers, magazines, bloggers and all those interested in African fashion and textiles as a way to promote this industry and bring links between African designers, craftspeople, manufacturers and texile designers with UK and EU fashion design companies and consumer markets, as well as with retailers worldwide.
I met Jacqueline at a book launch a few months ago and was asked to do some fashion illustrations for her book, and to which I jumped at the chance its a really great opportunity and a fantastic cause to promote African fashion. It is will be launching as a ethical fashion publication next month. I did quite a few illustrations of fashion by Oliberte, Lalesso, Fashion by Mia and Kluk CGDT for the book. Can't wait to share them with you soon prepare for some colourful delights :)
