Following on from the first edition, the second edition of the Fashionomics Africa competition aims to support African fashion entrepreneurs to develop sustainable and circular brands and to strengthen the innovative alternatives emerging in the fashion sphere.
The Fashionomics Africa contest is a challenge prize run by the African Development Bank, in collaboration with the United Nations Environment Programme, Parsons School of Design, Ellen MacArthur Foundation and BPCM, across the Continent.
On the Continent and worldwide, the current linear take-make-dispose model, characterised by rapid and endless consumption is giving way to a more circular and inclusive fashion value chain.
The main purpose of the competition is to highlight the continent’s talented and audacious entrepreneurs who are disrupting the fashion world by placing sustainability at the heart of their design and production.
The competition is open to entrants from across the Continent and the application deadline is on March 1st, 2022 at 23:59 GMT.
