About
Kibonen NY
Kibonen got into
fashion scene in 2009 when she came up with the ingenious idea of
revolutionizing the royal regalia of the Tikar people of the Bamileke and
Bamenda regions of Cameroon – the ‘Toghu”. She further developed her
aesthetic vision by creating pieces that don’t only represent the Cameroonian
tribes, but garments wearable and appreciated by the ultra-modern client –
constantly gaining inspirations from the African tribes and global trends. She
also represents her inspirations on textile designs printed on luxurious
fabrics as well as on the construction details, shapes and silhouettes.
The KibonenNY brand aims to provide a ready to wear sportswear line
catering to the client who is confident in luxurious quirkiness, who is
comfortable with trying the new and will travel the world at the comfort of
their current locations, through what they wear.
Amongst other accolades, Kibonen
was nominated by Africa fashion International as  Emerging
designer of the year 2013,
she has successfully showcased her talent at the
Art Institutes Mercedes Benz fashion
Week NY SS15
, Mercedes Benz Fashion
Week Africa SS13, SS14 and SS15
. She has also been featured in BBC Focus on
Africa, GQ SA, Forbes Africa and the New African Woman Magazine.  Her works have been showcased at the National
Museum of African Art – Smithsonian Institution.
