In this next chapter, Uwi Twins take us on a journey that shares the story of their Parisian influenced upbringing. The Uwi Twins acquired their European influence early on. After immigrating into Vancouver, Canada they received their adolescent education from École Gabrielle-Roy, a highly reputable all french school beginning from elementary through high school.
Inspired by european fashion, combined with their personal French influence & African roots, these innovative designers bring to life chapter SS’17. This collection reflects the bridge between western fashion and African aesthetics.
