Where passion meets fashion
Originating from Côte d'Ivoire, Rebecca Zoro celebrates Ivorian culture through the vibrant designs of her label LA MAISON YHEBE. Using traditional Ivorian prints, textiles and styles, she creates clothes that are revolutionizing African fashion.
Since my early childhood I have always been passionate about the strength, beauty and work of Ivorian women. Today I highlight this love through my creations. The inspirational trips inside Côte d'Ivoire as part of this project allowed me to "see" and "feel" the positive impact that female entrepreneurship can have on our local communities.
AWA by Magnum is a dream come true because it is the synergy between the young stylist that I am, the commitment of the women I met and the talent of our local artisans. I am so excited to present AWA on such a global platform and proud to know that the benefits will go to farming communities through Magnum's cocoa program that supports them. I thank all the people who between countries and continents have spared no effort to make this beautiful project see the light of day.”
Rebecca is a passionate advocate for female entrepreneurship, working with local communities to promote creativity, craft and financial independence. For us, there’s no one who shares our campaign mission to empower more women quite so much.
