Serge Mouangue: WAFRICA

Serge Mouangue's designs of the traditional Japanese kimono has attracted attention world wide. Born in Yaounde, Cameroon in 1973 and than immigrating with his family to France at age six, Serge's fascination with international cultures began at a young age. He studied Applied Art, Interior Design and Industrial Design in Paris, France before settling in Japan after an opportunity was presented to him by Nissan Motor Company. He immediately became fascinated with Japanese culture and began to express himself through textiles which evolved into designing kimonos blended with both African and Japanese influences. The kimonos are truly beautiful, to view more visit Serge at Wafica.jp

I'm lovin' these. Both a funky and flyy interpretation of the kimono.
Loves it.
