Jeunes créateurs is a concept that appeared in Paris in the 1970s. Now it seems to have appeared on us again. The designer’s current creative approach has a nearly young, colorful and even playful style. As luxury enthusiasts emerge from the long-term lockdown and isolation model, this transition coincides with the holiday season. A few African designers are catering to this newfound freedom, and their elaborate cutting-edge collections will set off a fashion frenzy.
