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.
