Autumn/Winter 2022/23 Couture Collection “Miyené”
For his Autumn/Winter 2022/23 Couture Collection “Miyené” which means both appearance and « to be seen », we once again discover the artist’s creative talent.
The theme story in this collection was inspired by the physical appearances of African identity and cultures which have been emphasized by traditional hairstyles.
Imane Ayissi decided to team up with the Gaboneece artist Boris Nzebo for the fashion show.
Boris Nzebo who is from Gabon and started life as a hairstylist is now one of the most sought-after urban artists from Africa.
Nzebo often takes inspiration from hair and explores hairstyles in human life as a medium to show social rank and culture using them as an inspiration for textiles processing and design techniques.
Both of their names are featured on the textile graphics.
Collection “Miyené” represent bold, strong and fresh collection
The result is a bold, strong and fresh collection, a colourful array of silhouettes with innovative fabric design, bold prints and liberal applications of raffia and silk fringing, and a long pleated white skirt with a printed silk blouse. African tribal art motifs, long dresses in animal prints, with tie-dye fabrics and body-hugging dresses.
