Niapsou – A Name, A Revolution, A Daring Designer & UNIFORM

In May, I got a call from inviting me to a “Fashion Show”. It’s rare that I show up to last minute shows, but I could feel something different about this one. I showed up at Espace Mushagalusa, a cultural venue in Montreal. I sat, looked at the name list of the front seaters, and waited.

Wasn’t sure what I was waiting for, because I had never heard of Niapsou but, being a New Yorker, I can sense he was a genius soul with a presentation called A-H 16: UNIFORM.

The first model came out and I was like….”Okay, this is cool“. The second model came out, and I was like….”wait a minute, I know her…that’s Gladys…a Super Model“. Then I saw Sassy walk down the runaway, by that time, I was hooked.

I tried to contain my composure as the scene developed into a frenzy of intricate designs, movement and dance, but “ohhh” I bubbled inside. The crowd went crazy while the models took formation on the center stage.

Now, fast forward to Festival Mode et Design 2016, and one of the names I keep hearing is: Niapsou. Am I going to see his collection at New York Fashion Week? I would say the chances are 99.5%.
