The global fashion industry is $1.3 trillion with sub-Saharan Africa’s apparel and footwear market valued at $31 billion. In Africa, the entire textile and clothing market accounts for the second largest number of jobs in developing countries after agriculture. In the next five years, the industry could generate $15.5 billion revenue. LaBré seeks to have “Fashion Made in Africa” become a global norm. Historically, Africa has been known for it’s natural resources of gold, oil, and cocoa. Fashion is also a natural resource of the continent, a material wealth that has the potential to contribute exponentially to the economy through the cotton, textile, and garment industry and employ millions of people predominantly women and youth.
