From high fashion to high-tops, on this week’s episode we talk about how the world creates, sells and wears clothes. What’s stylish in the Middle East? We’ll hear about lingerie in Saudi Arabia and an up and coming Iraqi designer—but we’ll also hear about suffering in the name of fashion and beauty in Ghana and in Turkey. On this episode of Latitudes, we’ll take you on a global catwalk, talking about fashion and style in all corners of the world..
Latitudes is an hour-long series of programs that takes you into the lives of everyday people around the world. The stories are unexpected, rich in sound and riveting to hear -- they engage the intellect, the conscience and the imagination. They feature people who are finding constructive solutions to some of life's toughest challenges.
Latitudes features on-the-ground reporting by a vast international network of correspondents. We also train local reporters around the globe, who take us inside their communities.
