Enter the #Passion2Purpose Competition supported by the London College of Fashion

For the second year in a row we’re teaming up with the short course team at the prestigious London College of Fashion (LCF), University of the Arts London  University of The Arts, London College of Fashion (LCF) – Short Courses to present the “Passion to Purpose” competition. Much like last year’s theme, “Bond & Become”, our goal remains to create opportunities to support the growth of Africa’s creative sector through these partnerships.

What’s this all about, you ask ?

This year’s theme of Passion to Purpose takes the last year’s objective a step further. Now we’re looking to expand the focus of our community to their impact on their surroundings. This year we plan to discover, explore and reward the hard work of Fashion Entrepreneurs within the community, as they create a positive ripple effect through their operations.

Through this we plan to bring to light these unique business models that are socially conscious to light as well as empower them with the knowledge needed to expand and actualise their missions.

Our partnership with LCF short courses gives us the opportunity to award a £500.00 discount off any one of their world class programmes.
