Taibo Bacar Autumn/Winter 2013-14 [Mozambique]
Taibo Bacar is an award-winning Mozambican designer, whose stunning creations have been setting African fashion boards alight for a while now. His latest collection for Autumn/Winter 2013-14, entitled ‘Fit for A Princess’ has captivated imaginations with its innovative use of Capulana fabric combined with sumptuous lace trimmings and embellishment. Capulana is a traditional cloth worn in Mozambique and is similar to other popular ‘African’ fabrics worn across the continent such as wax cloth and kitenge. Taking the urban princess as his muse, the ‘Fit for a Princess’ collection was inspired in Rome and is a journey from Africa to the world, and for, Taibo marks a beginning for African fashion.
Taibo’s collections are centred on a philosophy of creating clothes that are ‘the essence of every woman’s character’. He launched his eponymous brand in 2008 cultivating an aesthetic that fuses high fashion with ready-to-wear. Taibo’s designs have cemented his place as one of the continent’s leading fashion labels sought after for the sophisticated, elegant, and classic silhouettes with a modern edge that accentuate a woman’s body and made using the finest materials available.
