I’m Manni, currently living in Montréal. As a kid, I found an emotional connection to fashion- it was a magical tool that let me transform into whoever I wanted to be. Naturally, I let my passion take me into the fashion industry, working in multiple areas but most recently in design and buying. Behind the scenes, the magic fades. Faced with challenges around environmental degradation as well as modern slavery, I got a very chilling cold shower. Someday, I want to be proud of the fashion world again so I’ve decided to dedicate my career to the reinvention of my industry. I’m always so grateful for those who have joined this mission before me & I’m excited to meet them through FTA. I also started a small YouTube channel (@somannifique) to host an additional space for us to converse & learn from each other. See you around!
