Born in Belgium and raised in the Ivory Coast, Elie Kuame started his Elie Kuame Couture line in Paris after crafting his art in Saudi Arabia, Lebanon and China.
One of Elie Kuame’s style signatures is the mixing of contradictory fabrics like lace, leather, gazar, crepe, precious stones and even tree bark.
The show, organized by fashion production impresario Tai Chunn, was also a benefit for the Monique Vanessa Chunn Foundation for Cerebral Brain Aneurism Research. Tai Chunn began the foundation in honor of his sister who died suddenly from a cerebral brain aneurism.
Sophisticated and elegant, Elie Kuame’s Couture Summer 2013 Collection brought a breath of Parisian Couture to New York Fashion Week!
