VEGEA IN SOUTH AFRICA WITH HM FOUNDATION

From the 16th to the 21st of September, on the occasion of the opening of new H&M offices in Cape Town, Vegea was invited by the Swedish Retail Company to present Vegeatextile project to several audiences of schools, Fashion Design and Textile Technology Universities situated between Cape Town and Johannesburg (SA).

The meetings and presentations, made in collaboration with the H&M Foundation, had the purpose for the Foundation to achieve Its goal of raising more awareness about the Global Change Award, and ultimately securing more entries from the African continent.

As an ambassador of the Global Change Award and part of the H&M Foundation sustainability program, for Vegea It was the perfect occasion to explore new market opportunities and assess future collaborations with South African designers as Vegeatextile project received a lot of interest from them.
