Born in 2015, Maison Château Rouge is the Parisian brand with an African soul, as said by its creator, Youssouf Fofana, who inspires himself from his own Senegalese heritage, as well as in traditional African wax prints to drape the Parisian’s urban silhouette.
The brand’s name is a wink to the metro station called Château Rouge, located in the 18th district of Paris, the epicenter of African communities living in Paris. Maison Château Rouge is established in that very area, where they also source all the textiles needed for this purely Parisian production.
The story gets truly beautiful when you learn about Maison Château Rouge’s role in Les Oiseaux Migrateurs, an NGO founded by Youssouf Fofana in 2014, which supports the development of small and medium enterprises in Africa.
This young brand is incredibly successful and has already achieved some great partnerships and fully deserves it.
