Jacques Kouamé: Interview


The first words that comes to your mind when you hear Inspiration, Passion, and Strength


Who are you? (Answer how you interpret this question)

I’m the New Wave ( Nothing scares me anymore ) , I just want to teach the kids of my generation to move with an open mind and not be brought down by the system.

Why do you do what you do?

Because They HATE IT , and I’m happy when I doin that,

When did you know this is what you wanted to do, and what events led you to choose it?

I dress well since I was 13 years but I know this is what I  want to do when I turn 17 , I was at the Collab Alexander Wang X Hm and seing many youngers rock designers , cool stuff , be original really help me to get definetly into this fashion industry.

Toughest thing you had to overcome to do what you do? And what/who helped you?

My Sister really helps me , keep pushing me to do what I like even if my parents mostly disagree

Has anyone/anything ever inspired you to become who you are (to follow your dreams)? Have you ever inspired anyone directly?

RAF SIMONS /Ian Connor / Asap Rocky / Hedi Slimane really inspire me when I was younger . Now , I inspire all kids of generation via social medias . In real life, Everywhere I go ,  they hate or appreciate one thing in my person ( hair  , pants , sneakers )

One mistake that you made in your journey? How have you learnt from them?

Forget to put my alarm , I was late so I lost a chance to work with a creative person ( he don’t live in Canada so…)

Upcoming projects? Plans/goal? (about anything, if you have any)

Travel  GO EVERYWHERE and show them my vision , bring my ideas into this Fashion Industry .

What advice would you give to other people? (Just about life in general - It could be about anything)

Like be yourself You’re Amazing. Don’t be afraid to be different. Different is very attractive . And If you never take risks you will always work for someone who does  .

Say anything you want, about anything (Last words)
