Vogue business editor opens up about African markets and visiting SA

Vogue is headquartered at Condé Nast International in London, and Vogue Business editor Lauren Indvik is in Cape Town to attend the Condé Nast Luxury Conference.

The brand launched a business edition to give executives it works with exposure to world markets.

Indvik speaks to CapeTalk's Kieno Kammies about her visit and the decision to launch Vogue Business.

The focus is to explore and celebrate the incredible creativity of South Africa and the African continent.

We are definitely focused on the finance, the people who are supporting the designers either through investment funds or through retail concepts and those who are organising fashion weeks.

We hear from a lot of people that they have no idea what is going on in other markets. We speak to a lot of executives who sell in countries where they don't know what is happening in those markets.
