Amah Ayivi is a well-known name in the fashion scene. Co-founder of Comptoir Général in Paris, he has always been ahead of his time. He didn't start out creating a collection, but as a collector of second-hand clothes. Much of our clothing today ends up almost unused but unusable in West Africa, polluting the landscape and the sea. Amah, at home in Lomé and Paris, followed this up and started collecting second-hand clothes from the markets in Lomé, valorizing them and reselling them in Europe.
Amah Ayivi: "I don’t really like this craziness around fashion, to be honest, it’s too much. It’s kind of a mindset for me because we don’t need to change clothes every three or six months; we have what we need, we just need to be a bit creative and we can bring different things.“
Marché-Noir is a mindset and a lifestyle. Wearing his T-shirt a statement. When you know you know!
