This Is Our Story

PLATFORM23 is where you want to go for all of your fashion and lifestyle shopping. We've created this platform for creative individuals on the African continent who need a platform to showcase and retail their own authentic brands and designs. Africa is home to a vast collection of artists and designers with varied heritages and cultures that have never had the chance to be discovered and through this PLATFORM23 was formed.
Our primary purpose is to provide a one-stop-shop for the most novel and engaging African brands in the fashion, furniture, accessories, décor, craft and art industries. We are a niche e-commerce company focussing on empowering African entrepreneurs by providing an entry to market and a platform to showcase their talent to the world.
 Everyone’s been asking, why 23?
23 has been known as the number which evokes the manifestation of creativity and it turns out to be related to our core purpose - creating an integrated marketplace for the discovery of original and inspirational brands.
PLATFORM23 provides the perfect route to market for up-and-coming brands and designers from Africa, to the world. We are all about discovery and connection and we've grown from strength to strength in the last 12 months. This is only the beginning.  This journey is going to be grand, so come along and join us for the ride.
