“Fashion4Africa will be rekindling its contemporary African Pop Up with venue host China Exchange,” said Fashion4Africa founder and director Anna Njie. “The aim is to promote celebrate the entrepreneurial spirit of African designers, retailers and artisans and show another side of Africa. “What better way to do that than in London’s cosmopolitan city in one of its most vibrant areas of commerce and culture – China Town, in the West End,” she added. “This area has its own micro economy and is a natural hub for tourists visiting the city.”
