Savary recalls being inspired by Seoketsa’s vibrant and expressive works. The collaboration leads Savary into her latest edition of her ART&COUTURE series, converting unique artworks into exclusive fashion items. Her process is a dance that begins with photographing the artwork as faithfully as possible. Once she decides upon a design, the artwork is printed into high quality fabric. Each item is then hand made by an artisan on a per order basis. A total of 12 items are made per series, making them a must-have lifetime experience.
Makwande Art Residency not only affords African female artists the opportunity to practice in France but to also meet and collaborate with other formidable creatives.

It is through such bold initiatives that continental rifts are bridged. As Dostoyevsky said – beauty will save the world.
