Ethical Fashion Initiative Accelerator Programme:

Edition 98
This Burundi-based sustainable brand specializes in the amazing transformation of rare cow horn and brass into luxurious, wearable art. Margaux Wong is the brainchild of Guyanese/Burundian designer Margaux Rusita, who’s been passionately working as an ethically driven creative for more than 18 years and whose designs are heavily influenced by everyday personal experiences.

As the Creative Director, Rusita is continuously working with her team to produce distinctive artisan jewelry, realized with traditional techniques. Her commitment to sustainability has inspired hundreds of young people, to whom she has been a mentor over the last ten years in Burundi. Rusita's biggest aspiration is to have a lasting impact across the globe as she pursues the mission to connect people through art, love, and passion.

As one of five African brands chosen for the Ethical Fashion Initiative Accelerator Programme, Margaux Wong will feature in a special project during Pitti Immagine Uomo 99, in January 2021.
