Africa fashion, a billion dollar industry: Nigeria
According to Euromonitor, Nigeria has the second growing and thriving fashion industry in Africa, claiming a stake of the national apparel and footwear market valued at $4.7 billion. The country is seeing the growing need to develop their textile industry in light of the mounting influence of the fashion designers across the globe and they’ve put aside an investment of N37.2 billion to resuscitate the industry.
