Are millennials truly just a sensitive “likes-obsessed” generation that fritters money away on too many perfect Cappuccinos?

Over the past year, our Millennial Designer Series has cast itself as a beacon for the hardworking and distinctive fashion designers in Africa that cater to the distinctive millennial generation. It is a bi-monthly series that spotlights the young creatives disrupting the African Fashion industry with innovative, out-of-the-ordinary design skills that shatter traditional stereotypes.

This generation is particularly interested in the progress of women and what better way to round up BNS Women’s Month than with a dedicated feature for all the peculiar women we have interviewed so far.

Women like Hafash Mohammed, Bisola Adeniyi, Laurinda and Fatuma have proven they are much more than pretty faces, they are incredibly skilled at what they do and connect in a special way with their generation.
