The importance and value of Vlisco Tchigan Vor loincloth (grand loincloth in Mina language) at wedding ceremonies in Guin country in the lake region of southern Togo.

Placca’s collection tells the story of a young King seeking to marry a woman from one of the townships surrounding the village of Guin. The young king meets several women who are dressed in colours and silhouettes that refer to aspects of their personalities. The king has great difficulty chosing from all the different women, who all look beautiful and have admirable personalities.

Karma

Akouvi Danyo

Karma

Karma is the result of all our actions and their consequences.
Good and evil can be the consequence of past actions or sources of future consequences. In his collection and content presentation, Akouvi Danyo decided to develop the good side of Karma, which he named La Vie en Rose. His presentation shows a lantern that is always trying to stay alight. It is the light of hope that combats evil. The silhouettes were inspired by members of society who have the capability and responsibility to pass on good karma in their native area. Sources of inspiration were the Ewe people, Biguine folk costume, women and the urban man.

Unity

The Unity collection is wholly inspired by all of the definitions of unity that Djiedjom was able to find. The collection explores how unity is rooted in all areas and disciplines of being. Unity is found between people, but also in measurements, environment, language, religion, mathematics and love. His garments consist of eclectic mixtures of patterns and subtle details, which separately represent asymmetrical silhouettes, but together form a balanced whole: unity.
