1 year ago we launched My Asho Market, the sister site for My Asho which was founded in 2009. If you missed it, read our story here: http://market.myasho.com/blog/ourlaunchparty/
The business of “African Fashion” is an interesting one, which we’ve debated numerous times through our blogs and social media platforms. (Search for: Is African Print African? What is African Fashion? The African Fashion List)
Over the years, we have witnessed a huge focus on the industry - some good, some bad. There has been significant exploitation by Big Retail (in our opinion), but we’ve also seen good collaboration efforts made across continents. I guess the question now is, what comes next?
We certainly have some strong champions for this industry (a select few tagged in image above), and we’re excited to see what comes of everyone’s collective efforts.
Here at MyAsho/MyAshoMarket, we will continue to focus on establishing good production practices, working with like minded artisans and designers and consistently bringing great products with interesting stories to market.
Thank you for supporting us!
