Breanna Moore, a graduate of the University of Pennsylvania (UPenn) in Philadelphia USA launched the LaBré fashion line to increase economic growth in Ghana through job creation with Ghanaian inspired fabrics.
LaBré employs local artisans in Ghana who hand make all of their apparels. Breanna studied twice in Ghana as an undergraduate at the University of Pennsylvania, while in Ghana she was compelled to create the fashion line.
The line seeks to increase economic growth in Ghana through job creation by providing Ghanaian artisans and their products access and exposure to the international market.
The Inspiration behind LaBré
They also seek to primarily provide economic empowerment to women.
The UPenn graduate tells TheAfricanDream.net that some sections of the women population in Ghana who are sometimes disenfranchised served as part of the inspiration for her line which delivers a stylish collection of African inspired apparel. Breanna says “LaBré is committed to promoting heritage and traditional fabrics through modern design by producing compelling fashion forward aesthetic.”
“We are ecstatic about the launch of LaBré” said CEO and founder Breanna Moore. “All of our items are handmade by Ghanaian designers, seamstresses, and tailors. We are driven by our passion to eliminate poverty and unemployment.”
You can pre order exclusive, select items from LaBré Summer 2016 Collection at www.shoplabre.com. LaBré also uses fashion to provide increased cultural awareness between people of diverse social backgrounds and to educate about the history of Ghana. The Men Summer 2016 “Badu Bonsu” Collection and Women Summer 2016 “Yaa Asantewaa” Collection are named for two anti-colonial liberation fighters of Ghanaian origins.
On Wednesday, July 6th, 2016, LaBré launched a Kickstarter campaign https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/1834388486/labre-your-expression-is-a-movement?token=e8babe4c to raise funds to provide more jobs for Ghanaian seamstresses and tailors. TheAfricanDream.net endorses this effort and encourages your contribution as we, like LaBré, believe your support will impact the lives of young women who will be able to provide for their family and serve as role models in their respective communities to inspire others who might be grappling with financial difficulties.
