ABOUT THE INSTRUCTOR

Arieta Mujay is a marketing creative consultant that has been working in fashion at various capacities for the last 15 years across the UK and Africa. Her work is focused on Brand Marketing, PR & Communications, building campaigns both online and offline for Global retailers and e-commerce startups in the UK as well as introducing the rest of the world to fashion and creativity from Africa. 

Starting out as a window dresser for GAP which allowed her access to seeing how looks are pulled together, she ventured into assisting celebrity stylists and fashion editors in London. She also got work experience at fashion magazines like RED, Just 19, Sneak and Smash Hits Magazine, and then moved on to fashion PR and communications, working her way up to be head of communications for Global retailers like New Look, River Island, Boohoo.com and the N Brown Group

At New Look, she was part of the team that changed the retailer from its “stack them high, sell them cheap” fashion roots to a trend-led brand. In her role as head of PR for River Island, she was selected to go on tour with Rihanna to work on the promotion of Rihanna’s first foray into fashion — her collaboration with River Island which produced 4 collections in 18 months which sold out in record time and propelled the brand into a major fashion player on the UK high street. As Head of Global Communications for the Boohoo group, Arieta led the communications switch from advertising and editorials in print magazines to a more digital and influencer led approach which set the brand up to disrupt the way fashion is shopped. 

An African fashion Nomad, Arieta Is a veteran stylist and producer of fashion shows across Africa. Working on Arise Fashion week Lagos, AFI Mercedes Benz Fashion Week in Johannesburg and Cape Town, South Africa, and on Lagos Fashion and Design week creating the daily media alert which is a round-up of the shows. In August 2012, she launched her agency, African Creative Collective — a branding and communications agency representing contemporary African fashion brands and talent and embarked on a solo trip across Africa to understand the business of fashion, visiting 10 countries over 4 weeks. 

She continues to create content and advise African retailers and businesses on market entry and penetration, helping build and shape the business. She is currently working with start-up E-commerce lifestyle brands on brand strategy and communications as well as creating a body of work on the business of fashion in Africa travelling across the continent to interview creatives and artisans. She has evolved into a cultural curator of sorts working with the Now Gallery Greenwich on “Common Threads” a cultural installation and with Museum of Movements in Malmö, Sweden, on Afro Swedish and African identity.
