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.

Omoyemi Akerele, the founder of Style House Files & Lagos Fashion Week had this to say;

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
