Style House Files Presents X Retail : SheTrades Edition

From 8th to 9th of June 2019, Style House Files in partnership with ITC SheTrades, will host X Retail: SheTrades Edition.

X-Retail: SheTrades Edition, is sponsored by the UK Department for International Development (DFID) under the SheTrades Commonwealth project, which is empowering women-owned businesses across the Commonwealth.

Since its inception, the X Retail platform has focused on facilitating commerce, and creating access to market opportunities for fashion entrepreneurs to enable their businesses to generate sales; this is key to their sustainability and the industry’s ability to positively impact the economic landscape.  X Retail, which in the past has been on the line-up of the Lagos Fashion Week showcase in October, will for the first time, host a stand-alone event.

“Creating avenues for commerce is central to the SHF agenda. It was important we gave X Retail a stand-alone event that is truly reflective of the growth the platform has undergone over the years, as well as provide shoppers with  more variety and a tailored shopping experience” commented Omoyemi Akerele, Founder Style House Files & Lagos Fashion Week.

ITC SheTrades through its activities, enables female entrepreneurs to improve the quality of their products and services.
