This is a story that grew out of a BBC project to highlight the challenges and achievements of women around the world. #100Women. On "Impact", presenter Yalda Hakim introduced a film about how two women from very different backgrounds made a life-changing connection as part of the project. It focused on how a young Cambodian woman who grew up in the slums of Phnom Penh realised her dream to become a fashion designer...She was then joined in the studio by Ilona Vinogradova, who produced the film and Rupa Ganguli, Director of Clothing Connect www.clothing-connect.com who advises governments and businesses on the garment industry and also runs a global organisation, www.spinna-gallery.org for women entrepreneurs to mentor and train each other in textiles and fashion.
