伊曼-阿伊西 : 一次新的探索
The presentation of Imane Ayissi’s Spring-Summer 2024 collection took place on January 22, 2014, during Paris Fashion Week.
The collection emphasizes draping as a central element, utilizing various techniques to create unique garments.
Ayissi draws inspiration from the ancient art of draping, a gesture widespread across numerous cultures worldwide, from the peplum to the sari, still practiced daily by many women in West and Central Africa.
Ayissi explores different ways of wrapping, draping, and layering fabrics to create refined and sculptural garments. He creates pieces that sometimes complement traditional elements of Western wardrobes, but also result in sculpted dresses directly on the mannequin, held together by folds and one or two seams.
The collection highlights a variety of fabrics such as draped crepes, reverse satin crepes, organza, taffeta, faille, and duchess satin. Additionally, Ayissi incorporates several versions of his favorite fabric, the handwoven Kente from Ghana. This diversity of fabrics reflects the richness of cultural influences and artisanal craftsmanship.
Imane Ayissi places great importance on eco-responsibility. He ensures the use of sustainable and environmentally friendly materials in his creations, contributing to promoting a more responsible fashion. Furthermore, Ayissi utilizes the latest generation of bamboo fabrics.
The Ecobamboo fiber is produced in China by the Jilin Chemical Fibre group from high-quality bamboo and is certified by several international organizations, guaranteeing its durability and ecological qualities. The bamboo fabrics used by Imane Ayissi are manufactured in Turkey by the company Elyaf Tekstil, which offers ecological and durable products.

We thus offer a unique alternative in sustainable fashion.”

Several personalities attended the event, includingNicolas Bonnet-Ouladj, Deputy to the Mayor of Paris responsible for trade, crafts, liberal professions, handicrafts, and fashion ; Pascal Morand, Executive President of the Federation of Haute Couture and Fashion.
Imane’s talent was truly appreciated by the public. Amélie LANDMANN, International Project Manager of the Franco-Chinese Exchange Committee of CCI International Paris Ile-de-France, shared her experience:
“Imane Ayissi’s collection featured African patterns mixed with textiles, notably the use of bamboo fiber. The cuts varied, ranging from delicate cuts to more elaborate ones with long trains. A particular outfit that I liked was a red-orange jumpsuit with flowers, creating a sought-after androgynous style. Another black jumpsuit with straw knots and a train was also appreciated for its unique silhouette. The garments used bamboo fabric to delicately bring African elements while retaining typical straight cuts of couture. This diversity of shapes and elements made the collection interesting and unique. The effort put into creating these garments was evident and contributed to the beauty of the collection.”
for Diversity and Peace
The year 2024 is marked by the 60th anniversary of diplomatic relations between China and France, as well as the Franco-Chinese Year of Cultural Tourism and the Paris Olympics. Imane Ayissi and the magazine Airs de Paris are collaborating to celebrate cultural diversity and sustainability throughout the year.
The essence of Imane Ayissi’s work is to bring cultures together with renewed joy. He stated: “Faced with the great challenges of our time, it is urgent for us to unite to imagine, together, new ways of living and to define new common goods.”
2024年 : 文化多样性与和平
Let’s unite to imagine and invent diversity and sustainability. By accepting our differences and listening to others, we can create an environment conducive to peace and mutual understanding.
