Mrs Claire Kane and her trademark smile
My fav' shoot
That's what you call making an entrance
Love the colors & the lines
Claire's thirst of adventure is what took her to our lovely Senegal...
She first started discovering Africa & its style during her stay in Maroco while she did her traing with the stylist Holly Bagdeley .
From there she went on to Senegal that she never left
Her trademark is her work w/woven loincloth (pagne tisse) to which she gives a tad of modernity...
If you wish she's like an African version of Betsey Johnson..that's what I kinda like about her..she uses African accents while still staying a white woman...u dig?!!
Her brand is called CK 221 (her initials and senegal's area code) includes clothes and decoration items.
She's admired for her polished & funky designs; the UNICEF asked once to create dolls which profits will be used as donations.
Anywhoo she has this amazing project that I can't wait 2 see; an amazing art complex, w/ a showroom, bar, restaurants,movie theater...ect...basically a MALL but that's 1 first in SENEGAL..wonderful idea...we shall see:)
