Selly Raby Kane
Selly Raby Kane is a Senegalese fashion designer graduated in Mnagament / Business Administration and a Product Manager Master for textile and clothing Industries (MOD’SPE Paris). She has deep fantastic and cinematographic influences; she develops over the years an edgy and avant-garde line which earned the brand international media attention.
SRK swims counter current, building bridges between different forms of art and fashion. Gradually, Selly Raby Kane lends her style to numerous icons such as: Beyoncé, Nai Palm (Hiatus Kaiyote), Daara-J Family, Tiwa Savage, Rokhaya Diallo, etc.
She exhibits her pieces in many museums or collaborates with IKEA on the “Överallt” collection. Then, she directed Elsewhen, a science fiction project that explores the future of the continent through virtual reality and digital media as well as her first VR film the Other Daker which pays tribute to Senegalese mythology.
After having opened its ShowRoom, a co-creation space in Dakar and co-founded the company RUKKI BUKKI, today Kane is working on several projects bridging the gap between fashion, immaterial heritage, and technology.
