The Insider: Ozwald Boateng
Ozwald Boateng is chairman of the KISUA advisory board and brings over 25 years of experience in the fashion world with him. The British Ghanaian, self-taught designer became the youngest – and first black – tailor to join Savile Row in 1994 at the age of 28. Since then he’s received an OBE and enjoyed a tenure as creative director of Givenchy Homme.
Now he is turning his attentions to trade in Africa. The Made In Africa Foundation, a new initiative co-created by Boateng, has as its sole objective to fund feasibility studies for infrastructure projects across the continent.
