How do Fashion designers to benefit from UNAKU？
Here is a challenge faced by some in the fashion industry in Africa; talented designers cannot get well paid through their sketches so they started to sew themselves, but it is slow to sew many pieces for a massive sale, even if they have the tailors; not to talk of the challenges and cost of good marketing.
So, clothing lines, capitals, systematical sales methods require a huge investment to start. These complicated lines to earn well is a big challenge that undermines their confidence and blocks the development of the African clothing industry.
90% of the clothing sold locally still comes from overseas brands. Sadly, not every African can wear their own Ankara or other national designs because they can’t be delivered fast and conveniently. Except they choose the expensive way of custom making (buying fabric, find a tailor, wait days and go for fitting to adjust the measurements and so on).
Unaku comes out
Unaku has come with the solution to unit fashion designers to enable African clothing industry to rise. We wish to see the African clothing industry boom; where designers can get good returns and customers can purchase African designs at their fingertip. Unaku desires to be a high-quality fashion brand in Africa. Our solution is simple, designers will only design (Just do what they are professional at), while Unaku’s clothing factory in china will produce, fund the production, sales and share profits with the designers or pay them a design fee in advance.
