While attending the Documenta 12 Art show in Kassel, Germany in 2007, i had the chance to attend a fashion show for the amazing creative Senegal fashion designer OUMOU SY which was held in the Kassel train station. All the costumes were more of a contemporary art pieces. costumes made out of details from natural  materials, mixed with modern day used tools and materials. visually intriguing with all its details and different sources she uses in her costumes from textiles, compact discs, baskets, perfume bottles, feathers and raffia . mixing together the past and present of the african culture and history specially in Senegal. each of her designs tells a story behind in so much creativity and irony .
