Fasten-Free Womenswear Brand
MERCI ME LONDON is a simplistic ode to tribalism, movement, and freedom lending to even more personal style, expression, and a real sense individualism.
Created in 2013, MERCI ME LONDON is the continued exploration of the duality a tribal background (Northern Uganda, Luo) and diaspora life (London raised). The marriage of the two has became my stunning interpretation of contemporary tribal luxe and a true embodiment of being an African woman raised in London.
Using the distinct absence of strict tailoring, a rudimental way to fasten, bold cuts/structures, and fine fabric I have re-imagined tribe as a practical and beautiful way of dressing. I employed well thought out tie mechanisms – which in the absence of zips and buttons make for interesting shapes and a non-dictatorial approach to dressing.
