I am so happy to have recently launched my partnership with La Mode to launch these summer sliders we like to call “Amour”.
Amour is the French word for Love, love for everyday life and love for everything that is around us. Fahmida ( creative director of La Mode ) and I have had a long-standing friendship over the years since the first time we have met, I am so happy that we appreciate each other’s perception of what style is that we can combine both of them together for a tangible product that is practical yet stylish at the same time.
What I like about working with her and her team, that she perfectly embodies what a successful start-up looks like in Bangladesh, built with a lot of hard work and love and each season proving that it is possible to run an ethical fashion business in Bangladesh lifting the cloud of what Rana Plaza has caused to the reputation of Bangladesh as a fashion manufacturing industry.
Made out of faux leather, Amour is made locally by the artisans working at the La Mode factory. They come in two different colors, black and warm beige. It features a sponge padding that provides a great comfort especially if you have to walk to places or travel a lot. The entire partnership was 6 months of back and forth for Fahmida Apu and I testing the comfort and style consistency to our previous collaboration. And we couldn’t be happier the result we have produced Alhamdulilah.
