For the 4th year, ITC Ethical Fashion Initiative collaborates with Altaroma to bring fashion talent from Africa to Rome. This year’s edition included Christie Brown, Mo Sa├»que and Anita Quansah London participating in Altaroma's Room Service, followed by the "Beat of Africa” fashion show with DUABA SERWA and Mina Evans from Ghana, Jewel by Lisa, a special guest from Nigeria and the much coveted Stella Jean who now works with EFI across all regions.
