International Fashion Showcase 2012 Sierra Leone Showroom
Mariama Kargbo presents her inaugural ready-to-wear collection celebrating the rich artisan workmanship of the Sierra Leonean people. The collection features a fusion of heritage fabrics and traditional embroidery techniques, combined with modern style and design. The ethically sourced hand-woven fabrics used in this collection have been skillfully made by local artisans from Sierra Leone and feature the intricate tie-dye technique known as Gara. The design details, inspired by tribal outfits, are used as accents to create something that is uniquely Sierra Leonean; adding vibrancy and character to the silhouettes. This work will be shown alongside designers from Botswana and Nigeria in an exhibition curated by Carol Tulloch.
