Sakina M’Sa, portrait of a socially conscious fashion designer


This week the Stylist Magazine ran a portrait of the designer where she made a point of talking about growing up in Marseilles and her connections with the Maison Méditerranéenne des Métiers de la Mode (MMMM).

Founder of the concept store Front de Mode, and designer for her two lines Sakina M’Sa and Blue Line, as well as leading the project « Manifeste pour un eco-systeme de la mode au XXIeme siecle [Manifesto for a fashion industry ecosystem for the 21st century] » Sakina M’Sa is a real "slasheuse": a slasher/slasheuse is someone who describers themselves as having a day job/(slash) and second job, activity or passion.

As a designer with a social conscious Sakina M’Sa runs workshops at Seine-Saint-Denis {north of Paris], in Rio and in Madagascar. She also organises fashion runway shows in the Cancer Department at the Avicenne Hospital in Bobigny [north east of Paris], and is just starting her 6th "Fashion Week in Prison" at the Fleury Mérogis prison, south of Paris.

In order to celebrate the 5th anniversary of her T-Shirts « Goutte d’Or J’adore » [Goutte d'or is an area east of Montmartre in Paris] and « Barbes mon amour » [Barbes is in the 18th district of Paris], she is organising an open-evening in her workshop on 16 June from 6:30pm, at 6 rue des Gardes, Paris 18ème.
