The Logical Order, two crossed arches on the right shoulder, 4. Value of the Woman, flower-shaped motifs to represent the two families who have accepted the union of their daughter and son, and 5. Whirlwind of joy, in which the young couple will embark on a new adventure.
Vegetables and fruits shine in Kodjovi’s collection.

All elements converge in a plant world.
Corneil’s source of inspiration is all the women around him, beginning with his own mother, and the mother of his child, whom he defines as strong, feminine, and daring. He wondered how the contest could embody his vision of these women — mixing traditional wax with modern denim, hakui, (Les nervures) and honeycomb styles worn in Togo. For the photoshoot, he took his designs to the origin of his muses.
