Catherine-Monique as a fashion whose mission is about bringing African culture together with western culture through high fashion. It prides itself with providing alternative ways of wearing African prints with a current twist.


Her inspiration for collection she will be showcasing at AFWL 2016 is birds. The silhouette of the birds and how the feathers are built up and layered to make the bird, married with African prints. Birds and the African prints carry bright and beautiful colouring, which make it ideal to work together.
