Here are all the details for the Homecoming Digital Festival 2020

For the past three years, Homecoming’s annual festival has become a staple for Easter holidays in Lagos. Due to the pandemic, however, the festival have now announced that they will be making its return this year for the third iteration digitally and it all looks exciting, as it will be in partnership with London-based fashion powerhouse, Browns.

The focal point this year, will be on helping Nigerian brands in the Homecoming community to access international retail distribution.

Alongside the retail distribution, Homecoming and Browns Fashion will be presenting an e-zine titled “Ni Agbaye”, meaning “in the world”, which will be aimed at exploring the influence and exchange that afro-culture has on global pop-culture. It will also include a series of digital events, two of which will be live panel discussions. Kicking off today at 6pm BST, the first-panel discussion, ‘Pushing the African Visual Identity Forward’ will hold with useful insights from a multi-talented lineup including our Editor-in-Chief, Seni Saraki.

On Friday, the second-panel discussion will hold at 6pm BST and this time the focus will be on exploring the evolving state of global streetwear and the role which Africa is currently playing in its regeneration through the detailed insight of industry professionals like Virgil Abloh (the creative director of Off-White), Gee Patta (the founder of Patta), and Ireti Zaccheus (the founder of Street Souk) with moderation from Grace Ladoja and Alex Sossah (founders of Metallic Inc).

Both panels will be available to sign up to via Eventbrite and the Homecoming e-zine and product edit will be available exclusively at brownsfashion.com from 26 August. For the full Homecoming lineup, visit here.
