Ladybrille African Fashion News, #22

Happy Thursday to you! Hang in there, Friday is around the corner, woohoo! Some quick news before we get to the rest of our fashion news about/related to Africa. Yours truly is now part of a group of authors on in the newly formed African Accounts section. Kofi G. Annan of Annansi Chronicles, fellow blogger and also one of authors with the group, says this about the site and the newly formed section. [It is] “the world’s #1 site for small business motivation and strategies”, Titled, Sustainable Development Through Entrepreneurship: African Accounts, the new section [focuses] on the African perspective in business and entrepreneurship. Among the authors who already write for the site are Donald Trump, Michael Gerber, Zig Ziglar, Seth Godin, Jay Conrad Levinson, [and] Guy Kawasaki."

In another news, the recently completed Capetown Fashion Week [CFW] got more media attention that it bargained for when 35 South African fashion students protested outside the four [4] day event. The basis for their protest was what they believed were exorbitant fees required to show at the event, click here for the full story. A criticism by Renato Palmi got a response from Africa Fashion International's [AFI] CEO Paul Jackson. AFI is the producer of CFW. What's your opinion? Do you think the fashion students are right? Should they be given an opportunity to showcase at a major event like Cape Town Fashion Week? Leave your comments!
By the way, I enjoyed this post by Africamedia, "Africa gets faster internet connections, compliments of, uh-oh, US military." Enjoy the rest of Ladybrille's Africa/African Fashion News and as always, have a brilliant day!
