No upcoming events for the moment. We are headed to New York City’s Javitz Center at the end of the month for Coterie, the big fashion trade show, where we will show Kupendiza wares and make friends in the industry. We will also be floating samples from a new buiness partner, Le Look Bags of Nigeria.
