Hello, i’m Erla gazine, I was born in Maputo, Mozambique. I live in Milan.
What is it made my world?
Of light and darkness, happiness and sacrifice, of tumbles and growth. I am a woman and a stubborn mom, since I took the other girl in my world, made up of vanity and rebellion, emotional intelligence and desire for redemption. A continuous uproar, the sound of the earth.
How I can listen as well as to dream?
The only way to be anchored to it, was wear of the shoes. The shoes make the happiness of a woman. I started to see the difference: the white and the black, the beautiful and the ugly. The difference between those who dream of being a woman and who it is.
What does it mean to be a woman in Africa?
From the moment I decided to undertake this project, I thought of fashion as a connecting element between myself, my roots, my desires and my dreams. I want to tell this story. Introduce you to the symbol of power and revival items. Objects that are worn, to recover the true contact with the earth. And bring you into my world, on a journey far away, in my past, present and future. A light in Maputo. I want to become rich. But not in the sense that you understand it. It’s time to say my grip of responsibility to my roots, through the entrepreneurial project that took me guts, body, soul, time and suffering. My first collection of luxury shoes, presented in a special event. A unique performance. A setting that is inspired by the key episodes of my life. An example of what luxury means today Responsibly.
The opportunity to bring together synergies, a moment of reflection on what it means to restore dignity and value to ALL OVER THE WORLD WOMEN.
