Our mission at Cabo Verde International Fashion Hub is to establish Cape Verde as the premier destination and central hub for the African fashion industry promoting sustainability, inclusivity, and innovation, while addressing the challenges faced by the African and global fashion industry.
We aim to create a sustainable and ethical fashion industry that benefits all stakeholders, from designers and producers to consumers and the planet. We are committed to nurturing local talents, facilitating the growth of the African fashion industry, and empowering African fashion entrepreneurs to take their businesses to the next level. We strive to provide training, education, and resources to promote sustainable fashion practices and reduce our carbon footprint while promoting ethical practices.
Our strategic location on the world map will enable us to manufacture, distribute, and ship made in Africa products globally, creating economic opportunities and promoting socio-economic development across the African continent.

Who we are
Fashion's Destination 2032!Ethical/Sustainable Fashion with Innovation to Empower the African Creatives on a global scale
We are the Cabo Verde’s International Fashion Hub, a dedicated organization with a 10-year plan to establish Cape Verde as the first sustainable fashion industry in the world. Our unique location at the centre of the American, European, and African continents, combined with our established initiatives, Miss Cabo Verde International and Kriol Fashion Week, make us the ideal platform to promote sustainable and ethical fashion practices in the industry.
Our mission is to lead the fashion industry by example, demonstrating that it is possible to create beautiful and fashionable clothing while protecting the environment and the rights of workers. We believe that sustainability and ethics are the keys to long-term success in the fashion industry, and we are committed to promoting these values in Cape Verde and beyond.
Our 10-year plan is to establish Cape Verde as the fashion hub of Africa by 2032, a goal we will achieve by collaborating with fashion designers, textile manufacturers, and retailers to promote sustainable and ethical fashion practices. We will host workshops, conferences, and fashion shows to raise awareness about sustainable fashion and the importance of protecting the environment and workers’ rights. Additionally, we will advocate for policy change to support fair trade policies and enforce labour standards.
Through our initiatives, Miss Cabo Verde International and Kriol Fashion Week, we will showcase the beauty of Cape Verde’s unique culture and heritage while promoting sustainable fashion practices. Our goal is to inspire and educate the next generation of fashion designers, retailers, and consumers to create a more sustainable and ethical fashion industry for the future.
At the Cabo Verde’s International Fashion Hub, we are dedicated to making a positive impact on the fashion industry by promoting sustainable and ethical practices, establishing Cape Verde as the fashion hub of Africa by 2032, and inspiring others to join our movement towards a more sustainable future.
