Natal talked to Samson Joseph, manager of the African Fashion Show, and two other fashion designers, Sarah Jackson and Gracy Orla Ticout.
Samson Joseph is South Sudanese born and fled his country to Egypt due the crisis in the Sudan. From Egypt, he moved to Australia in 2004 to pursue further studies and better life.
Samson’s love for interior designs, architecture and beautiful houses led to establishing his business: A + Fashion.
This year’s African Fashion show was huge; it featured four different designers showcasing their dresses, three dance groups and four music performances.
Fashion designer Sarah Jackson, also from South Sudan, moved to Australia in 2005 to pursue further education and focus on design.
Sarah says she is studying fashion design at MSIT College and hopes to get her company label more recognized in the near future.
Gracy Orla Ticout moved to Australia from France in 2010 to study Hospitality Management.
She created her fashion line, ‘Orla Dee’ to present African design and to see the African princes to blossom in the African community and mainstream Australian society. She also works in one of Brisbane’s best restaurants.
