Hello all, Happy Sunday to you and I hope that whatever your plans are for today that they will be fulfilled.
As the African continent is fast unveiling some major talent in the fashion and design sector, every day we come across a new brand from aspiring creative with a focus on creating luxurious, highly essential pieces for the fast growing fashion lovers. Cameroon is no different. Talents in the country are also working their socks off to catch up with this growing trend/demand.
We introduce you to Maison D’Afie a womenswear brand launched a few years back in the UK by Sarah Divine-Garba a young Cameroonian accountant who gave it up to follow her fashion dream. After a small short hiatus which allowed her to “live” a little and from her new base of Geneva in Switzerland, the lady is back with a whole new look and a different collection dubbed “Mami Nyanga”.
Their new collection is a subtle romance between “street couture” and tropical flavours giving rise to a few essential classic items. The collection is made of 8 interchangeable pieces suitable for any occasion. The idea here is to achieve much with less.
She surely remained true to her brand by infusing tribal accents into the designs with the use of colour and embroidery of tribal art. Most of the work is artisanal with a lot of attention put into the cut.
Quality and practicality were the key drivers in her thought process. The collection features customised prints in silks, and polyester and there is indeed a pick for every lady.
Check out the pieces below...
