Africa fashion, a billion dollar industry: Angola

The World Economic Forum has placed Luanda in the top 10 of growing economies on the continent and now a third ranking fashion hub with national apparel and footwear market worth $1.5 billion. The textile industry is slowly picking up, with over 3000 jobs created in 2015.

 

Nadir Tati, fashion designer

Tati makes couture dresses and tailored bridal wear, which she sells at a price point ranging from $500 up to $10,000 a dress. She boasts of creating dresses for Michelle Obama, but also highlights the much needed textile development in the country as 90% of her fabrics come from abroad.
