Mayor’s Dialogue Fashion Collaboration Links Freetown Designers To Milan And London Markets

TransformFreetown is about transforming lives and one of the interventions I am really excited about is the Fashion Collaboration under the Mayors Dialogue which is co-founded by myself and the Mayor of Milan Giuseppe Sala. Supported by the Mayors Migration Council and ODI, this intervention will strengthen the Freetown fashion industry by giving opportunities to Freetown designers and garment makers to be exposed to the Milan and London fashion industries.

I was in Milan with Mayor Giuseppe Sala in May this year where I met with the President of the Milan Fashion Council and discussed the implementation of the fashion collaboration. Today, I am thrilled that Marie Carroll of Bivamiks Designs, Mohamed Barrie of Fashion ONE SL and Emmanuel Edwards are in London learning from and sharing with Sierra Leone’s very own Fashion Icon Foday Dumbuya of LABRUM LONDON!! We are all excited about how this fashion collaboration will create new jobs in Freetown as the industry expands. Was great to have a zoom call them all yesterday!
