Ozwald Boateng x Made In Africa

We have great admiration for Ozwald Boateng OBE his approach to tailoring and business is confidant and determined. The Made in Africa Foundation is his next enterprise,  set up in 2011 by Boateng, Nigerian business man Kola Aluko and Nigerian oil and gas company Atlantic Energy. It's main purpose is to "support and fund feasibility studies and master plans for the transformational large scale developments and infrastructure projects across the continent". The promo video 'Our Future Made In Africa' tells you more about it. One gentleman struck a chord, he say's "the important thing is to value to yourself as a person, that defines the greatness of a person". A simple and straight forward statement, that in the context of this project say's great things can come when you know who you really are, when you value your self (Africa). Made in Africa Foundation believe that sentiment and once again we're inspired. Check out his styling on his own Gentlemen of Boateng, the still below says it all as does support the foundation is getting from the African Development Bank, John Legend, Yasiin Bay (Mos Def), Isaiah Washington, Youssou N'Dour, Akon and others
