Aya Chebbi, the African Union Youth Envoy, has some exciting news to share:
Aya is looking for a young African designer to collaborate with to design an exceptional outfit for her to wear to this year’s African Union Summit in February. This is a fantastic opportunity for designers to show off their creative genius at the AU Summit in Ethiopia.
The outfit should draw inspiration from the theme of the year, “Silencing The Guns”. This theme focuses on ‘ending all wars, civil conflicts, gender-based violence, violent conflicts and preventing genocide in the continent by 2020.’
