iciHaiti - J.O. Tokyo 2020 : Haiti wins 2nd place for the 10 most beautiful costumes of the Parade of Nations
Friday July 23, 2021, at the opening of the XXXII edition of the Tokyo Olympic Games, Haitian fashion shone during the parade of 206 delegations and won 2nd place in the ten most beautiful costumes in the ranking of the "international Outsports" media.

Made with karabela, a typically Haitian fabric, cut from pieces of colored chambray and crowned with long lace, Maëlle Figaro David's costume (Maëlle creation) draws its originality from the very essence of our traditions and customs.

"It's a devotional costume" says Maëlle, who draws her inspiration from "kouzen zaka".

The Ministry of Culture underlines "Maëlle David needs no introduction in the world of fashion and design in Haiti. Here and elsewhere, she promotes local culture by highlighting the beauty of traditional Haitian costumes, from colonial times to contemporary times. Not being at its first attempt, in 2016, at the Olympic Games in Rio in Brazil, the delegation's costume, made in karabela by Maëlle David, was ranked 3rd by the Yahoo site [...]

Maëlle built her reputation as a designer by devoting herself to research through our traditions, our various expressions and cultural elements and especially through Haitian vodou. For her, the costume worn by the Haitian Olympic delegation during the opening ceremony of the Tokyo Olympic Games, reflects another way of seeing through Haitian culture...

Bravo to Maëlle David !"
