Fashion: Les Peches Mignons
I simply love these looks by Les Peches Mignons based in Bamako, Mali. The designs are so chic, colorful and lovely. The designer behind the brand is Mariah Bocoum Keita, a former model who lived in France before returning to Mali to create her own brand. The bogolan peplum top is one of my favorites. Mariah represented Mali at the FIMA fashion show in Niger and is definitely ready for the international stage.
Mariah and I, and two other designers were scheduled to do a fashion show to promote Malian cotton in late March at the Institut Francais in Bamako that was canceled because of the coup.
