Kenyan fashion goes global, and global fashion examines sustainability fatigue

Hello ,

Happy Thursday! I hope it’s been a good week so far, and if not, no worries —we’re almost there. I really want to make progress on spreading the geographical coverage here as much as possible; if you have any suggestions for sourcing regular stories from Nigeria and Kenya (Kenya’s got some key headlines today), hit reply and let me know — I’d appreciate it!
