When I met Diarra Bousso walking about at the Lincoln Center, I felt a great vibe from the young African Designer. She was sweet, and her look was fun, colorful and creative. She had her “wearable art” in full display.
Diarra is the owner and designer for her luxury brand for Dakar Boutique. She told me about her show, and I quickly jumped on the band wagon and went.
At the show the music was vibrant and in accordance with the mood of the show. Her designs were bright and happy, they instantly put a smile on everyone’s face. I loved that a few of the designs came with their own headpiece. I am a big fan of headwear! In conclusions her designs were sexy, the use of the prints felt very African, but organic at the same time, as if they could fit in into the city atmosphere in the Summer. I enjoyed this show so much and truly hope that she comes back to the Big Apple in the near Future!
