Ethno Tendance Week-End from May 4th – 6th, 2012 in Paris. Designers Wanted, Inquire within!


I are glad to present you a fresh new fashion event arriving on the fashion scene !
This year will take place the Ethno Tendance Week-end, a special week-end dedicated to ethno- fashion and solidarity, sponsored by Marie Daulne from « Zap Mama ».
The event will take place on May 4th, 5th, 6th in Bruxelles at the Musée Royal d’Afrique Centrale.
This event is looking for putting artists, designers, stylists with dual culture forward, enriched with their interbreeding, African and European at the same time. This is also a real commercial platform, a place that allowed people from all horizons to share their artistic vision and ideas. The event also supports, an association for the respect and development of women in africa.
For this first year, a close up will be made on the pagne.
Why ? The pagne is a real symbol, symbol of a country, an era, a social class. It is a real heritage, passed down from generation to generation.
We relocate it, it becomes international and comes in various forms. We have seen it on the last collection of Givenchy, Burberry, Dries Van Noten, etc…
Even the celebrities are fond of the loincloth, Gwen Stefani, Alicia Keys or Beyonce, proudly display with !
This original symbol of the African culture will be honored for the first edition.
The Ethno Tendance Week-end is still searching for designers, male and female models, artists, musicians, singers with world/ethnic influences. Please visit the website for any information.
May, 4th, 5th, 6th in Bruxelles has to be remembered !!
Expect a fabulous program with fashion shows, conferences, photo exhibition, documentary film screenings, associations village, creative workshops, café theater, exhibitions honoring african countries and sale of handicrafts…
