Behind the growth of the African economy, there lies a 31 billion dollar industry that thrives and propels the people of this progressive continent. Much like the international fashion industry, the African fashion industry has been able to accept change and adapt to the constant evolving climate of the global fashion industry.
African fashion goes beyond the intricate designs of the continent's culture, heritage and dress. It represents the innovation of Africans in fashion, business, media and of course, technology. Hence why it has been ablle to grow at such a rapid pace to become the multi-billion dollar industry.
It's no news that technology and social media are enabling brands disrupt the fashion industry. It makes even more sense that technology has seeped into the DNA of fashion brands and companies like Rent-The-Runway, Zalando, and EON are using AI, data mining and 3D scanning to improve shoppers' experience and how the everyday person sees fashion.

On Tailorgang Academy 65% of the users who signed up on the service in our first one year had intentions of learning, some of whom we disappointed. What we have now done is to give them a separate app that is dedicated to the learning process. We needed to capture the learning process, from discovering new tutors, categories and students; this we have done with the Tailogang Academy. Yes, users can now download their video contents to their phones and watch them later! You can also give feedback to students and tutors.
