Vogue Talents is supporting emerging designers along with the African Fashion Foundation by launching a new scouting project dedicated to African creatives.
Vogue Talents has in recent times supported the work of various African Designers, such as South African Thebe Magugu, as well as rising star Kenneth Ize, from Nigeria, and Maxhosa Africa, the South African knitwear brand by Laduma Ngxokolo.
Scouting for Africa 2020 is a project conceived by Vogue Talents and African Fashion Foundation (AFF) with the support of IFFAC.
