THE ITC’S ETHICAL FASHION INITIATIVE AND ALTAROMA ALTAMODA 2013


Africa to Rome was a result of a collaboration between the International Trade Center’s Ethical Fashion Initiative and Italy’s Altaroma Altamoda, also known as Rome Fashion Week. It was designed to give global attention to African artisans. The Ethical Fashion Initiative is an ongoing UN mission that works to help women in Africa make their craftsmanship available to the market and it’s an awesome empowering way to fight poverty. The Ethical Fashion runway show featured African designer brands Christie Brown, Portenier Roth, Stella Jean and KIKI Clothing. kIKI Clothing was honored to take part in a show that has a worthy cause…the Ethical Fashion Initiative’s motto, “not charity, just work” is a slogan close to KIKI Clothing’s heart!
