Angola: Fashion Sector's Development Entails Training

Luanda — The growth of the fashion industry in the country involves academic and professional training of national creators.

This was defended Wednesday in Luanda, by designer Gloria Silva.

Speaking to Angop about fashion in Angola, the designer advocated the "relevance and urgency" in the creation of schools and other institutions dedicated to the training of agents linked to the fashion industry.

Due to the lack of fashion schools in the country, Gloria Silva mentioned that those interested in increasing their knowledge in this artistic field have been travelling to countries like Brazil, Portugal, South Africa, England and others, for training.

She also pointed out that the promoters of the country's fashion events are becoming more active by carrying out various activities in which new talents

are discovered, namely the "Moda Luanda", "Huíla Fashion", "Angola Fashion Week" and "Benguela Fashion".

This year, Gloria Silvia announced the launch of her own new collection and participation in an international fashion show in France.
