His communications team announced that the collection will be officially presented on 29 October.

He is Cameroonian. His name is Mason Ewing and is visually impaired. Yet in spite of this handicap, Mason Ewing is not discouraged. The designer has created a collection of sportwears. This collection has its particularity that the patterns are in Braille. According to his communications team, the fashion show in which the collection will be presented is set for 29 October 2016, that is in two months. The man who left Cameroon 30 years ago, Mason returns to show what stuff he is made of.

For this event looming, our sources indicate that press releases have been sent to the media. The parade is under the theme “un espoir pour l’avenir” (a hope for the future). The designer will present two collections. The first named “Madison colors” which is a series of sportwears for men, women and children. The special property of these t-shirts is that they are having braille patterns so that blind people can identify the color and know about the size of clothes.

The other feature is located at the logo. This highlights a cute baby complexion mixed with flanges eyes called “Madison“. It symbolizes, we learn, the fight against discrimination and for tolerance, disability and equal opportunities. “A baby does not lie, do not judge,” said the designer in 2015 with the weekly Jeune Afrique.

The second collection of Mason brings together elegant dresses inspired by the Roman and Greek gods. “Guided by the desire to share, Madison Ewing wants that everyone, regardless of their status can be recognized through his clothes,” writes the daily Le Jour edition of August 25, 2016.

As a reminder, you should know that Madison has lost his mother – a model and seamstress – when he was 4-year old. He was sent to France with his aunt and the husband of the latter. The boy experienced abuse. After being beaten and kidnapped, he will lose his sight after 3 weeks of coma. In 2004 the couple was sentenced.
