On Tuesday, September 9thKibonen Nfi showcased her SS2015 collection “Multifarious” at the Mercedes Benz Fashion Week New York at the Theatre of the Lincoln Center. Aside from becoming the 1st Cameroonian and 1 of the few African designers who have showcased on this prestigious fashion platform, Kibonen NY showcased a collection inspired by her memories of a colourful marketplace in her home town of Bamenda in Cameroon. This collection was shown among 12 other students who were chosen following a rigorous competition done in the Art Institutes under the watchful eyes of industry leaders and faculty members as judges. There was a definite contemporary-African vibe to the collection the brand presented at Mercedes Benz Fashion Week with its focus on easy-wearing separates. Check out our favourite looks from the collection below.
