Three African female fashion icons, Anna Getaneh from Ethiopia, Anita Berlyl from Uganda and Nafisa Hafiz, who hails from Sudan will feature in this weekend’s edition of CNN African Voices, a 30-minute programme sponsored by Globacom.
The three fashionistas have carved a niche for themselves in the fashion industry worldwide as they drive the styles found on runways around the world.
A statement issued by Globacom describes Getaneh as a former international model, a humanitarian and social entrepreneur, who is also the founder and Creative Director of African Mosaique, a clothing design, manufacturing and retail company in Johannesburg, South Africa. On the programme, she is expected to dwell on how she is using fashion to empower and connect African designers.
The second guest on the programme, Anita Beryl, is described as ‘a thriving entrepreneur who is making her name known in Kampala through her fashion house”. She is the creative director of award-winning Beryl Qouture, a Ugandan fashion industry power house. Just last year, she was invited to showcase her designs at the World Fashion Week 2017, in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia.
Sudan’s Nafisa Hafiz, the last of the guests, according to the statement, is inspired to actualise her dreams of leading her country’s fashion industry begin with motivation drawn from traditional designs. On the programme, the designer will let viewers into her fashion world and how successful she has been in realising her dreams.
