Nigerian Fashion Brand, Wana Sambo Wins Ready To Wear Brand Of The Year At Glitz Africa Fashion Week
Nigerian fashion brand Wana Sambo, presented its Voyage of Mademoiselle Adanna collection during Glitz Africa fashion week in Accra, Ghana on November 9, 2013. The brand is proud to announce that it won the ready to wear brand of the year award, which was presented at the Glitz Africa fashion week award ceremony on the same day as the runway show.
Glitz Africa fashion week is an international platform that exists to showcase and promote Africa’s fashion talent. Wana Sambo was one of many brands that showcased their collections during the event to rave reviews ‘I am grateful to GAFW for this award and their continued support of the Wana Sambo brand. With the voyage of Mademoiselle Adanna collection, I wanted to show pieces that exemplify womanhood, strong yet feminine, I am glad that it is getting such positive feedback’

Liya Kebede And Christy Turlington Honoured For Work On Infant Mortality At Glamour Awards
Supermodels Liya Kebede and Christy Turlington were recently honored at the 2013 Glamour Women of the Year Awards for their work on Infant Mortality. Both models were also named Glamour Women of the Year.
Ethiopian model, Liya Kebede and Turlington share, on the surface, a career—as two of the world's most celebrated models. (The Metropolitan Museum of Art once called Turlington Burns the Face of the 20th Century, and at 44, she's still modeling for Calvin Klein Underwear; Kebede, 35, has graced the cover of American Vogue three times and is a face of L'Oréal.) But they are also mothers (each of a son and a daughter), advocates, and change agents. In our conversation, both spoke passionately about the work they're doing in tandem to make motherhood safer for women everywhere.
Turlington Burns founded Every Mother Counts, which helps vulnerable women around the world have safer births. Liya Kebede, a former World Health Organization ambassador for maternal and child health, started the Liya Kebede Foundation to support maternal health care throughout Ethiopia, and the results are impressive.
