Business of Design launched in Joburg and Cape Town

Business of Design is a dynamic seminar and workshop by leading South African design professionals, 
aiding artisans, designers, manufacturers and small to medium enterprises in the design and fashion 
industries to significantly expand local and international markets. The workshops were held in Cape 
Town and will be held in the coming week in Joburg. 
 
The Design Institute is sponsoring Shngai Nyagweta, designer and owner of Kuna 
Design to attend the Joburg workshop. Kuna supplies clothing that is bright and bold with an African 
twist for kids ages 0 up to 7 years and is currently run as an online shop.
