Dagoretti Fashion&Design Centre is a social enterprise working in the textile sector, employing young women specialists.
From threats come opportunities: this is what happened with the conversion of production at the Dagoretti Fashion&Design Centre during the pandemic. This textile centre, which used to produce clothes in wax, has started to produce.
A market study was carried out in 2021 to identify the productions that would allow the Dagoretti Fashion&Design Centre (DFDC) to effectively enter the local market. In addition, an international sponsorship event was held at the Milan Stock Exchange conference hall, where entrepreneur Dede Sonya Agdoban presented the centre and its production of reusable masks, which was the result of a joint project with the Afro-Italian start-up BBstyle. The international mentorship – carried out by BBstyle’s experts – has in fact strengthened the skills of DFC’s human resources for the production of the reusable masks.
The company participates in the business platform organised to encourage, also through matching, greater involvement of Italian companies in projects aimed at reaching the Sustainable Development Goals in partner countries.
The platform aims at promoting effective partnerships between public, public-private and civil society actors (Target 17.1) and at strengthening the role of the private sector as a driver of development and growth in complex geographies.
