Mansour Martin collaborates with the French artist Camille Cabanes

Dear Shaded Viewers,

The artistic directors, Mansour Badjoko and Martin Liesnard, are Belgian and  met over 10 years ago in Brussels. Their concept of fashion is to imagine stories around each project and to work in collaborations and with multidisciplinary arts. Their collection is not gender specific. The collection is made in Europe in a transparent production process. Camille Cabanes is the first artistic collaboration for the 100% sustainable brand. Camille masters several disciplines: illustration, painting, drawing, paper sculpture and fine art.

Mansour Badjoko graduated from both La Cambre in Brussels and IFM in Paris. Mansour has worked as a stylist for main fashion brands during the last ten years. He has also worked on personal projects such as theatre and dance costumes. He lives in Brussels.
Martin Liesnard  graduated in fashion and design management from the university in Paris. His grandmother, a sewing teacher, introduced him to this discipline when he was four. He has worked in marketing, communication and creative projects management for fashion, entertainment and perfume brands. He lives in Paris.
Today, they combine their respective knowledge as an artistic duo through the project Mansour Martin.

The collection has been launched this week and is available on their website.
