DESIGNER PROFILE: BiriBelle Clothing & KiRette Couture



At this year's African Economic Forum held at Columbia University fashion and African designers specifically were a part of the discussion. Panelists and attendees discussed the role of fashion as a means of economic development and as a vehicle to re-brand Africa.

The forum also featured an evening fashion show and reception that showcased the lines of KiRette Couture and BiriBelle Clothing.

BiriBelle Clothing designed by Madia Willis fuses West African fabrics with vintage and bohemian style offering young women contemporary, fun afrochic looks. www.biribelle.com

KiRette Couture’s signature style is inspired by the toghu- a colourful and intricately embroidered robe typically worn, on special occasions, by the people of Camaroon's Western Highlands
region. Launched in 2009 KiRette Couture, designed by Kibonen Nfi and Anrette Ngafor specializes in tailored one of a kind pieces. www.kirettecouture.com
