Industrie Africa is the continent's very first digital showroom with a mission to support native designers and give them opportunities in the context of the global fashion community. It does this by setting up comprehensive profiles for emerging talent and making the content accessible to "media, buyers, customers, and other insiders."

The selection process of the digital showrooms follows a few guidelines that are specifically set up to assure Industrie Africa markets relevant and active contributors. These rules require profiled brands and designers to produce Ready-to-Wear, accessories, shoes or jewelry with a seasonal collection cycle. These businesses have to have at least one professionally photographed line and a regular stockist. In addition, brands that take part in the digital showroom must adhere to at least two sustainability standards — responsible, ethical, artisanal, recycled, charitable.
