I'll be showing at Columbia University Business School's African Economic Conference on March 26th. With an exciting line-up of speakers and panelists, I am glad to see my alma mater is dedicating a whole section of the conference to African Fashion as an industry. More details to come. I'll (finally!) be hitting up Fela on broadway that weekend too.If you are interested in attending for a group rate please email me.
