The french designer sophie theallet based in new york, known for her couture dresses and to have many times dressed michelle obama, has brought together her new collection around a passion: africa. from a live concert of black beauties who cat walked, to dresses with a clever mix of exoticism and very effective modernity.itw sophie thealletafrica holds a big place in my heart, from the early days, my father was a doctor, he paid visits in jellaba with slippers, french, country doctor and that always inspired me.nowadays, the designers work for haute couture houses, big groups which give masses of money, they do collections and me, i am an independent company, i do everything on my own, with my friends, people who i like, people who believe in me and push me to do what i have wanted to do, and i forgot all about the business side of things, all about the “you can’t be brave” side, no ! i am free, fashion must make you dream. we must share emotions because that’s what creates fashion.i learnt about couture with azzedine alaïa, i worked with jean paul gaultier, i learnt for 10 years. then i went to alaïa, when i was 18, and i went to jean paul gaultier and i forgot about my roots when i came to new york. but this evening i found my roots and i found my honour to be a designer and to do what i like without worrying about anything, i can be free. music from the show
