Origin was the first collection the brand showcased at Mercedes Benz Fashion Week Africa in the year 2012. The inspiration behind the collection is a fusion of all the essential aspects of the mille collines journey since its origin in Rwanda, the year 2009; the contrast between global trends and the essence of African tradition.
Look book for this collection was shot in a studio in Barcelona.

“Sapelle fashion blog said: mille collines, the Rwanda-based design label, presented a range of classic pieces in muted earth tones with accents of African print fabric and meticulous detailing using traditional Rwandan embroidery and appliqué techniques. The overall effect: must-have wearable fashion.”
