« Y-Latro», an event for young fashion designers
A fashion show organized by Y-Fashion and initiated by the YMCA, Youg Men’s Christian Association, Y-Latro promotes talented and creative young designers. The goal of this event is to raise money to fund the training of Y-Fashion members, a club of fashion and fashion design enthusiasts. Y-Latro is a meeting platform for fashion fans and values African fashion, but especially Malagasy’s. Fashion designers such as Sariaka Rah, Pierre Rakotondravelo, Gaona and Maforal will present their new collections during the show. As there is no specialized school, the 48 members of Y-Fashion are self-taught but will be offered training in fashion through this event, which will also allow them to flourish in the fashion world and to get to know renowned fashion designers. Y-Latro is looking forward to seeing you on December 8 at 7 pm at the YMCA Madagascar headquarters in Ambatobe Nanisana, a show that will introduce you to the creative world of Y-Fashion’s young members, as well as the four stylists mentioned above, showing you their creations to marvel at, all as magnificent as the others.
Although this sector has always been severely threatened by, among other things, thrift stores and Chinese who are constantly invading the clothing market, it takes much more to discourage fashion designers and they are ready to further professionalize this sector.
