Doussou Traoré is a novel fashion design partnership that bridges world-class art, textiles and tailoring. Malian craftsmanship is at the heart: in the midst of the arid terrains of the Sahel, textile makers practice ancient weaving and dyeing techniques. They create motifs that spin hundreds of tales. We offer unique contemporary styles drawing inspiration precisely from this folklore.
Doussou herself is a fusion of world cultures. She is of Malian heritage, born in the United States and she lives in Italy. She takes on any opportunity to explore sights, colors and tastes. She sets out to shatter myths, keeping her mind open to diversity and novelty, and rejoicing from the experience. In her endeavor, she invites you to explore behind the sacred veil of Malian craft, clothing you in the unique and the bespoke.
