I began following the Tumblr of Kisua Online, which is about African fashion and design. They're going to be opening up an online marketplace in the next month or so, which will allow consumers around the world to buy African fashion. Africa is huge continent with many nations that are home to many excellent designers, but it can be really difficult for many of them to sell their stuff to overseas customers right now. One of the goals of the entire project is to eventually have all the clothes made in Africa, as currently some need to be made overseas due to infrastructure issues in some African nations.
