MUYSHIME – QUEENS & KINGS WEAR MUYISHIME
Date : On Friday, September 16, 2022
Venue : Hotel Salomon de Rothschild in Paris
The young South African designer Jacques Bam and the Rwandan designer Muyishime Edi Patrick have each been awarded the « Designer Africa Fashion Up 2022 » prize by Balenciaga.
THE AWARDED DESIGNERS
On Friday, September 16, at the end of an exceptional fashion show organized at the Hotel Salomon de Rothschild in Paris, the jury of the Africa Fashion Up program chose two ex-aequo winners among the five finalists: the young South African designer Jacques Bam and the Rwandan designer Muyishime Edi Patrick.
Each was crowned « Designer Africa Fashion Up 2022 ».
Born in Kigali and raised in Nairobi, Muyishime has been immersed in the world of fashion from an early age through the influence of his family.
His mission as a designer is to erase limiting societal constructs such as gender.
That’s why his pieces are androgynous, durable and fit a wide range of sizes and body types.
His vision is to make Muyishime an internationally renowned luxury brand with stores in all the world’s fashion capitals.
A NAIROBI BASED SUSTAINABLE LUXURY BRAND
Muyishime is a Nairobi-based sustainable luxury brand strongly anchored in these contemporary times, focused on sculptured, tailored designs that are innovative, androgynous and gender-fluid, ignoring the separations around gender by flowing between feminine and masculine, uniting and fusing. This is a very necessary recalibration of society.
MUYISHIME BRAND 2016
The brand also tackles the crisis in self-confidence through adaptable and adjustable clothing.
The brand was started in 2016 as an artistic endeavour by the creative director/owner, Muyishime Edi Patrick, immediately after joining campus to do his BA in fashion design and marketing. The brand does not shy away from exploring bright colours and explosive sculpted silhouettes that come to life in gowns and our signature palazzo pants.
Muyishime represents liberation, awakening and transformation…
Muyishime is for all. It is limitless and dreamlike. It is bold and unapologetic, while still upholding elegance and timelessness.
