On December 3rd 2016 Prospero World in partnership with Arts Global and Roger Hammond Memorial Trust Fund (RHMTF) launched the African Social Enterprise Fund (ASEF) at Sotheby’s, London. The ASEF aims to support entrepreneurs in creative industries with high growth potential in Africa, to become socially minded entrepreneurs.
We are happy to partner with Prospero World in bringing this Fashion Award to fruition and supporting the ASEF’s flagship Sustainable Fashion Programme in supporting an outstanding African designer to grow a sustainable fashion business.

The Textile and Manufacturing industry has an enormous potential and is expected to thrive in Africa in the coming decade. The fashion industry is directly related to the Textile and Manufacturing industry, which creates opportunity for Africa to have a larger presence as a global contributor to the fashion industry. Supporting and training African designers to build sustainable, social and environmentally – minded business models will enable them to display their resources and talents; attracting more business and increasing the continent’s economy, which is crucial for its prosperity.
