GABONESE FASHION DESIGNER ANGELE EPOUTA!


Angele and some of her models!
Elegant!

Ahh sexy dee!


Mrs Epouta, as a little girl enjoyed making clothes for dolls. Her mum who was seamstress encouraged her greatly She went to Paris and studied her craft and took also some management classes before creating her own line, she's been invited consistently to African fashion shows...
She works w/a lot of African fabric; pagne wax, raphia,ect... her style is very feminine She works w/her association OWALI which helps new young designers, offer them classes, also give them the opportunity to show their designs... I listened to one of her interviews, she was insisting on the fact that in Africa a lot of our tailors disdon't focus on finishing touches (I would have to agree w/that) so she advises them to study their craft, go to school..good advice:)

Here's her webbie:
