Documenting the journey of a Cameroonian filmmaker
Everyday I stumble across Cameroonians making it in different areas of entertainment and it is so awe-inspiring, given that just a few years back it was almost unheard. I am just so proud to be a part of this generation. Here are a few of the budding fashionistas from our very own Camer.
SYL ANIM designs by Ms Sylvie Anim Mbuta.
The uniqueness of SYL ANIM designs is in the intricate and creative “crocheting” patterns. This blend of fabric and crochet makes for “distinguishing” pieces that should be in every girl’s wardrobe. In addition to being a designer, Ms Sylvie Anim is also an actress currently featured on the Nigerian TV soap, “My mum and I” now showing on AIT channel and DSTV’s Africa Magic. Check out more of her designs on: http://www.facebook.com -sylanimdesigns.

KIRETTE COUTURE is made up of a duo, Andrette Ngafor and Kibonen Nfi. Based in both London and New York respectively, these Cameroonian lady designers are redefining the traditional Bamenda ”Toghu’ wrapper material and recreating trendy high-end fashion. In the few short years, since Kirette Couture has been born, the ladies are surely making their presence felt on the international fashion designer scene; such as the New York African Fashion Week and the recently ended CamerCouture show in London. Be wowed by their latest designs at the ongoing ‘Brooklyn Fashion Week – Oct 24th -30th., also at the forthcoming ‘Bamenda Rocks’ event taking place in DEC at the Bamenda Alliance Francaise Camerounaise, where young and fresh Cameroonian designers are encouraged. Check out their designs on facebook.com/kirette couture.

Cameroonian women are taking the fashion world by storm. Cote Minou is also made up of a duo; Maryanne E. Mokoko and Stephanie T. Mouapi. These ladies bring a modern twist to the traditional African couture, you can take their pieces straight off the runway to any event, be it day or night. (Great news! especially since some designs make you wonder if they are just for display or can actually be worn). Check them out on http://coteminou.blogspot.com/ and on facebook.com – Cote Minou.
