While great design is a critical factor for success in fashion, it takes a whole lot more to create a viable brand. With the two-fold mission of propelling African designers onto the world stage and promoting a healthier planet, a pair of fashion educators have launched Re-Roll Station, a 6-week digital course for up-and-coming designers. Kesiena Harry is the Programs Manager at the Annaire Art and Fashion Academy in Port Harcourt, Nigeria. He is also a member of the WEF global shaper community that targets fashion entrepreneurs who want to collectively and positively contribute to climate activism. Cher Potter is a South African design curator, educator and founder of AfriDesignX, a pioneering sustainable design research hub.
