Nataal is a proud media partner for the upcoming Wish Africa Expo on 8-9 June at Olympia London. The inaugural event hopes to showcase the very best of modern African excellence across fashion, art, architecture, travel, food, technology and business and highlight the current trends and critical debates surrounding the continent’s fast-paced cultural, social and economic development.

The designers will discuss how the continent both influences their own collections and the wider fashion and creative industries.
