Mossi Traoré

Nothing predestined him to fashion. As a child, Mossi Traoré imagined himself as a soccer player rather than a stylist. But, very quickly, the clothing becomes for him a means of expression, a way to build his personality.

Born of Malian parents, he spent his adolescence in the Hautes-Noues housing estate in Villiers-sur-Marne.

Breaking with the dress codes of the city,

Mossi Traoré imposes his choices and especially the freedom to dress as he wishes. He then decided to devote his studies to fashion and in 2005, he enrolled in a fashion design course at the Parisian school Mod’Art International. Fascinated by the world of the Opera, he did several internships at the Palais Garnier as a dresser.

This was an opportunity for him to discover the mysteries and the actors of the Palais, which nourish his imagination. At the end of his studies, he continued his apprenticeship in fashion and sewing as a volunteer with an Indian seamstress at the Gare du Nord and an African tailor with a workshop in the suburbs.

In parallel to his studies, he became responsible for a department within a boutique for Giorgio Armani. Mossi Traoré travels a lot around the world, especially in Italy, Africa and India, to immerse himself in and discover different cultures.

 

THE BRAND

Mossi is a brand of ethical ready-to-wear thought in a spirit of integration and sharing. The Mossi silhouettes evoke the rigor and aestheticism of couture.
Each creation is the result of a long reflection on texture and volume. Like an architect, the designer plays with the space he is given.

Mossi creates movement out of inertia and fixes it by playing with drapes and pleats. The Mossi brand is nourished by artistic collaborations and artisanal know-how. Each season the designer articulates the story of his collection around an artistic partnership.

In 2019 the prints of the collection reproduced the textile sculptures of Simone Phelpin.

In 2020, the kufic and cursive writing of calligrapher Hassan Massoudy inspires the movements and colors of the new collection. And we collaborated with Korean artist Lee Bae for 2021.

 

THE ALIX WORKSHOPS

Attached to the spirit of transmission, Mossi Traoré founded in 2015 a school of haute couture « Les Ateliers Alix« . Focused on creation and mastery of know-how (from corsetry, to embroidery through ennoblement) it trains about thirty students per year.
With the support of its association « Les Ateliers Parisiens » created in 2016, Mossi not only trains young people in Haute Couture but also helps them to integrate into the professional world.

The school and the association also train women from the neighborhood or migrants without qualifications in the sewing trades in order to make them pass the CAP in free candidate and help them find a job.

« Les Ateliers Alix » is also an opportunity for the designer to pay homage to Madame Grès, whose name is Alix, whose work fascinates him. Fascinated by the design of Yohji Yamamoto, Issey Miyake, Margiela,
Indian culture but also Japanese manga and contemporary art, in 2017, Mossi Traoré launched his brand MOSSI of women’s ready-to-wear that evokes the rigor and aestheticism of the couture.
