Leading telecommunication giant, Globacom will be sponsoring a show that focuses on African fashion industry on CNN.
The $31 billion African fashion industry will be the focus on the CNN 30-minutes magazine programme, African Voices, this week, and will be showcasing top African designers.
Creative stylists and designers such as Jenke Ahmed Tailly, Karim Tassi and Katherine-Mary Pichulik are expected to be featured at the show.
CNN said: “We will start with a fashion icon out of Ivory Coast who is hoping to shake up the industry with his African heritage.
“And then we head to Morocco where a fashion designer is imprinting his city’s rich culture on crafty clothing, while also being inspired by international elements.”
Globacom, in a statement from its headquarters in Lagos, said this week’s edition is a must-watch for aspiring fashion designers to learn new trends in the industry.
African Voices is broadcast on CNN International at 10.30 am on Fridays.
