Hello people.. A proud moment for Camer Fashion!

History has been made!! On Tuesday September 9th Kibonen Nfi showcased her SS2015 collection – “Multifarious” at the Art
Institute Mercedes Benz Fashion Week New York In the Theatres at Lincoln
Center. Kibonen becomes the first Cameroonian and one of the few African
designers to showcase on the most prestigious fashion platform in the world.

Kibonen showcased a collection inspired by her memories of a
colorful marketplace in her hometown Bamenda, Cameroon, where the royalty and
the rural people intertwine the use of garments as textures, patterns and
embellishments are tweaked. This collection was shown among 12 other students
who were chosen following a rigorous competition done in the Art Institutes
under the watchful eyes of industry leaders and faculty members as judges.
Kibonen aims at carrying her aesthetics to a more
international stage and tapping into a more refined clientele who will be able
to consume her fine and minimalist lines contrasted to her bold colors, patterns
and prints.
Joining Kibonen for this huge milestone was Cameroonian NBA star,
Fashion and style icon Luc Mbah A Moute of the Philadelphia 76ers. Luc who was
sitting front row at the show was impressed by Kibonen’s passed works, her
vision, her knowledge of fashion and above all her ambition to make her African
aesthetics in fashion mainstream. Luc believes that supporting each other is a
virtue we must all cultivate as it ensures sustainable development.
Kibonen and Luc share a joint passion for Cameroon and
promoting the beauty of their country is always key in all they do.
Kibonen now moves on to South Africa to showcase her extended
SS2015 collection at the Mercedes Benz Fashion Week Africa , October 29th 2014
where she was nominated as Emerging Designer of the year 2013.

Here are a few pictures of the collection..Enjoy!
