London-born designer Craig Green established his namesake label in 2012 shortly after graduating the Fashion Masters course at Central Saint Martins. He has since carved out a unique position amongst the city’s most innovative talents and continues to earn both critical and commercial success globally.
Exploring concepts of uniform and utility, Green’s cult-like runway processions have become a highly anticipated fixture of the menswear calendar. Though known for their dramatic and deeply emotive qualities, his collections are firmly rooted in the steady development of simple, yet rigorously considered signature garments such as the Worker Jacket.
Green’s distinct offering of substance within spectacle has earned the label a loyal customer base within some of the world’s most prestigious boutiques and department stores. Stockists include Barneys, Bergdorf Goodman, Dover Street Market, Galeries Lafayette, Joyce, MatchesFashion, Mr Porter and Selfridges. Green’s work also resonates within wider creative spheres. His designs have been featured in a range of major exhibits including the Metropolitan Museum of Art’s ‘China: Through the Looking Glass’ in 2015, and 2018’s forthcoming ‘HEAVENLY BODIES: Fashion and the Catholic imagination.’ The brand has also been commissioned to create costumes for Wayne McGregor’s ‘Obsidian Tear’ at the Royal Opera House in 2016 and Ridley Scott’s ‘Alien: Covenant’ in 2017.
Green’s accolades include British Menswear Designer at the Fashion Awards 2016 & 2017, the BFC/GQ Designer Menswear Fund prize 2016 and Emerging Menswear Designer at the British Fashion Awards 2014.

House of Dz - binging real urban street style to the public without watering it down or exaggerating it for the catwalk.
House of Dz is a south London based urban contemporary luxury fashion house created by fashion graduate Sammie Dz Olawuyi. He had his first taste of the industry through modeling and was inspired to go on and study it at the university of East London, where he produced his first unisex collection dubbed “Area Boys”; made up by the concoction of two cultures dear to him; London street culture & Nigerian Luxury.
The son of a Nigerian Tailor; HODZ founder Sammie Dz was influenced by the many cultures exposed to him growing up in the boiling pot that is London; always reflecting on his own street/gang culture experiences; house of Dz creates instantly recognizable pieces that feel familiar and nostalgic yet contemporary with the characteristic roadman edge.
A$AP Rocky said, “ I have a voice that speaks for a whole other market- not just black people, but high fashion urban people. I mix streetwear with high fashion. It’s never been seen before”, House of Dz (pronounced Dee zee) epitomizes just this, mixing high fashion with real streetwear, not simply copying or having influences. By tapping into this other market, titled “Urban Luxury”, HODZ has been able to expose a real urban street style to the public without watering it down or exaggerating it for the catwalk.

A not-for-profit social enterprise promoting the full supply chain of Africa's fashion and textile industry.
Fashion Africa Yearly Conferences and events create opportunities to share ideas, information and expertise, to raise awareness and elevate the perception of design from the continent.
Our events are must attend events where there are a mix of press, brands and industry influencers and insiders with a mutual involvement and/or vested interest in elevating African trade, design and production, and who want to be part of the wider solution to raise Africa as a trailblazer in quality design and production.
‘Fashion Africa’ Conference and Seminars were created to be a catalyst in the industry to help change perceptions of the fashion and textile industry in Africa and to ask those in Africa working in garment design and textile manufacturing what THEY think and need and so aim to keep these discussions ongoing in different locations annually where possible international industry leaders can connect.
