The Gender, Women and Civil Society Department of the African Development Bank Group will on Friday, 29 January 2021, host the fifth episode of the Fashionomics Africa Webinar Series.

During this fifth episode, panelists will shed light on the role of fashion enablers in improving the exposure of micro, small and medium-sized enterprises operating in the textile, apparel and accessories sector. The session will identify the challenges faced by fashion entrepreneurs, especially women and youth; share tips on overcoming these challenges; and discuss the new tools available for creative minds.

Fashion enablers, as their name suggests, are actors that enable the fashion industry to develop and expand on the continent and beyond Africa's borders. They provide essential support for the fashion ecosystem. The webinar, themed Fashion Enablers: Bridging the Gap for Fashion Entrepreneurs in Africa, will foster a discussion with the key players of the sector who are breaking down silos and working towards one goal: the development of the fashion industry as a whole.

The audience, mainly comprising fashion entrepreneurs, will gain insights from experts on the alternatives and emerging trends to take advantage of an increasingly digitized fashion world.
