FOCUS IN 3 QUESTIONS
- Why this love for fashion you who works first of all in the social reintegration?
"Fascinated by the fashion since my earliest childhood, I found at first my inspiration at the young designers of my country of origin, Senegal.
Curious generally about all which is made in this domain, I had the idea, by increasing, to value the talents of this local fashion.
I meet then a young Senegalese designer on whom I decide to promote the brand in France as the ethnic fashion is rapidly expanding.
Shows; fashion shows; exhibitions, I multiply the meetings and decide to create an association including all the actors of the fashion in the city where I am settled, what is going to give birth to Mode in Rouen. "
