Addressing a delegation of BRICS Ministers of Culture on Wednesday, he said the programme must assist young designers to understand the fashion industry, promote the creation of market access and the consumption of fashion amongst BRICS countries.

The Minister said the programme must also support access for BRICS fashion designers to participate in each other’s premier fashion shows and to jointly explore manufacturing, textile and retail opportunities within BRICS countries.

“Fashion like film is one of the key cornerstones of the creative industry. Both are worth millions to the economy and both are major job creators,” Mthethwa said.

He said the success of the inaugural BRICS fashion show indicates that there is a market for BRICS Fashion.

The 3rd BRICS Ministers of Culture meeting was held at the Cradle of Humankind World Heritage Site, Maropeng in Gauteng.
