Color us eclectic

Hey people! While we hope the month is going great we really are counting the weeks to the… yes, you guessed it, Wax Print Fest 2019! Apart from opening the conversation about African textile, business, and the fashion industry, it’s also a proactive way to support a community of creators and entrepreneurs. What a better way to hold hands!
Also… how well are we taking care of our mental space as people of color? Seeing as it is Mental Health Awareness Month, and a healthy mind does flow into everything we do, are we prioritizing our headspace? Legit questions need to be asked. How accessible and affordable is therapy, really? Get into this issue and read on how some platforms are alleviating the challenge. Oh, but of course there’s also a bit of everything!

So as we were saying!
If you’re an aspiring exhibitor or vendor, we hope you’ve already secured your spot because the offer ended last Wednesday:( . Participants get access not only to those physically present, but as the fair is also digital, vendors will have access to online platforms for sales on that day as well! However, you need to be there to see how it’s done. Make sure you have tickets and for more information go to www.waxprintfest.com!
