Rumour in Africa was founded by Zinzi de Brouwer in 2016. The purpose is to offer a gathering place for those who share common objectives to enter in an open dialogue to intellectualise fashion in the African context. Herein, the trailblazers of tomorrow form a community through collective values and beliefs, sharing stories and patterns of thought. The talks circle around a direct agenda on how fashion can promote growth, sustainability and allow for inclusive business models that will benefit creative talent in the Pan-African fashion industry. Allowing the story-tellers of this vast growing realm to be heard. Moderated by Zinzi de Brouwer.
