Elie – born in Belgium, of Ivorian and Lebanese origin, grew up in Cote D’Ivoire where he explored femininity and fashion.
The reality in which Elie grew up led him to turn to the world of fashion. After four years of Artisanal apprenticeship, he joined a famous bridal dresses house where he took his first steps as an assistant. He was selected for his originality and rigor, qualities that allowed him to chain experiments in various Parisian workshops.
On March 23, 2006, Elie KUAME won a contest for young creators sponsored by the prestigious Hermès House, the DRIM, and Chamber of Commerce and Industry (CCI).
It was thus possible for him to present his first collection named ‘Women of Power‘ It magnifies femininity with simple, clean lines, wildly sophisticated cuts, and embroidery details that are both delicious and dramatic at the same time.
ELIE KUAME INSPIRATION
Elie began a series of travels around the world where he enriched his knowledge, embellished his talent, and discovered the exaltation of his creative senses. Europe, the Middle East, Asia, and Africa brought him many new influences.
These translate into a particular ability to assemble different materials and make sense of them.
Thus, he mastered the work of materials such as silk, lace, leather, fur, mother-of-pearl, stones, or a little more unusual like tree bark.
Influenced by the visual, emotional, and conceptual elements found in architecture, history, painting, travel, photography, and the arts, Elie KUAME exploits the world around him with passion, attention, and opportunism.
