Summary

The Kenya Fashion Council is a result of collaborative consolidation of multi-stakeholders within the Kenyan Fashion Industry with the aim to further the interests of the Kenyan fashion industry and its fashion designers on the global fashion landscape.


History

Kenya, a major economic hub of East Africa, rich in culture and skilled fashion designers, is sadly poorly integrated into the global fashion industry. The Kenya Fashion Council works hand in hand with fashion designers, institutions teaching Fashion Design, Textiles, Production, Media in Fashion and legal professionals within the industry and the Government to create a functional Kenyan fashion industry.

What’s more, the council endeavors to be part of policymaking around the fashion industry, build opportunities for local and international partnerships, create an environment for vibrant networking events, create a hub for industry insights and resources, develop or enhance business collaborations for growth, opportunity for showcasing and selling products to local and export markets, and create an enabling business environment to thrive in the Fashion industry.

Per the official website: “A National Fashion Council for Kenya will ultimately result in  maximization of the market share by best utilization of resources and ensure sustainable solutions to the Kenyan Fashion and Creative Industry, thus increasing its net value [through shared resources and finances creating jobs, empowerment of industries through specialization and expertise in the various fields within the industry, as well as global recognition on a larger platform…"


Mission

To create a functional Kenyan Fashion industry that is credible, dynamic and economically sustainable.


Vision
