The Uwi Twins fashion label continues to thrive. After a successful fashion show in The Journey Fashion Festival during New York Fashion Week, Reuben and Lévi Uwi have been invited to participate in Paris Fashion Week on October 1st at Place Vendome!

The multitalented Uwi Twins’ journey took them from their African roots to Vancouver, Los Angeles, New York and now to Paris; a beautiful narrative for what influenced their Spring/Summer ’17 collection. The Parisian Street-wear inspired collection will be shown in the heart of Paris to the international fashion industry.

The young designing duo who escaped the Rwandan genocide in 1994 has now reached a new level within the fashion business and will be showcasing their unique line, inspired by European fashion, combined with their personal French influence & African roots amongst the best.

These gifted and upcoming designers have caught the eye of buyers internationally. Their journey has been that of dreams becoming reality which is a true inspiration to the millennial and beyond. Their success is a shining example of why Malena Belafonte’s THE JOURNEY FASHION FESTIVAL was conceived. A platform that combines diversity and accessibility for established and emerging domestic and international designers, giving them a high profile presence during NYFW and additional markets, in a new and innovative format.

Watch their presentation of this year’s (which is technically already last year’s) SS16 collection below, and congrats guys!!!
