I am Cecile Essono; fashion stylist and self proclaimed Afrochic queen. French girl, born and raised in Cameroon, now living in the beautiful London.
Cecefinery came out of the need to see African fashion and accessories represented under a new light for the modern and city living.
While working closely with African, Afro-Carribean designers and makers for the past 8 years, I realised that there is a new wave of African made creations the bigger market is overlooking.
Styles where designs are eco-friendly, recycled, using sustainable methods and fabrics that are deeply engrained in the west African culture. Yet are slowly being forgotten despite them being super stylish and absolutely align with the new consumption awakening. And are great for the growing demand of African made goods.
So, I am bringing Afrochic to be that cross-cultural lifestyle between the Western fashion I have always been influenced by, and my African traditions ,culture and craftsmanship, I came to realise not many are aware of.
Every design sold on CeceFinery tells a cultural stylish story . So, I would like to offer the wearer a new fun, authentic and meaningful cultural fashion option. So that together, we can preserve these ancestral methods while staying fashionable.
