Of course it's business!
I'm sure there are not many people in Africa who can afford themselves bying designer clothes or even bying a glossy magazine once a month since it's still a poverty-stricken continent. And I'm sure there are much more current problems in Africa than not having their own Vogue

You've probably never heard of Elle South Africa...

Anyways, I see this magazine mirroring Chinese Vogue. I hope..

Haha I thought that immediately and then realised that I don't speak Dutch...

It would be fantastic to see and so logical, I mean historically speaking Holland has had an ENORMOUS influence on European art which has naturally filtered into European fashion. Not to mention all the wonderful Dutch models, photographers and journalists.

I don't know if them saying no to Vogue Africa right now was such a terrible thing. There are many logistical issues. How can they properly market it to all the different cultures on that continent? From Morocco to Namibia they have a lot to cover. What language would it be in? I guess English, like Vogue India? But there are regions where English doesn't have that much of a presence. How can you cover fashion for an entire continent where such drastic extremes exist? I don't blame them for saying no, it seems like an enormous endeavor.

I second that. In the end research and development expenses would be extremely high for a Vogue Africa issue (due to the intercultural differences as blueorchid mentioned, this issue couldn't cover entire Africa anways) and the low general purchasing power of Africa might indicade a low sales volume and low sales volume leads into a lack of print advertisement interest. Why should high fashion houses be interested to publish their print campaigns in a Vogue issue that aims a market with a lack for luxury fashion, anyways? Budgets for editorial content would be close to zero, maybe they wouldn't even run to fulfil the contribution margin... who knows...
The Netherlands have much better logistics infrastructure, higher purchasing and all...The issue could even become pretty relevant for the other two Beneluxian states. Luxembourg maybe not so much but remember Belgium.... Quite a potential market for this Dutch Vogue, too.

I just don't want it to be in Dutch. English would be so much easier.
