COLLECTION INSPIRATION FOR MBWCT

The collection I will show is inspired by this high-fashion group of men called “Sapeurs”. They emerged out of a movement ove 25 years ago in Congo called la SAPE, which stands for “La Societé des Ambianceurs et des Personnes Élégantes/ Society of Tastemakers and Elegant People,” The sapeur of Congo are the world unlikeliest fashionistas. Ordinary working men wearing elegant sharp attire and creating flamboyant identities for themselves through their brightly coloure suits, and luxurious swagger. I will be showing my interpretation of the feminine version of Sapeur “sapeuse” in nowadays.
