Archived: Cameroonian-American using Fashion as a Tool to Fight Boko Haram

iCrowdNewswire - Mar 18, 2016

Milwaukee, WI, March 18th, 2016: Lionceaux Designs today announces the launch of a kick starter project to raise at least $10,000 in 33 days to manufacture and release its new line of fashion clothing. Lionceaux Design was founded by CameroonianAmerican Sona The Voice after travelling back to his homeland of Cameroon for the burial of his son who had passed away while on vacation there. To commemorate the passing of his son, Sona decided to design a couple of fashion designs to wear in remembrance of his son. This mission ended up linking him with Maryel, a local designer, and they both worked on a couple of styles which ended up creating a lot of attention in the United States whenever Sona The Voice wore them.

MISSION: JFK Once said “ask not what your country can do for you, but ask what you can do for your country” and with Lionceaux designs, that is what founder Sona The Voice sets out to do. We may not have the heavy artillery like the government does but we believe that by creating a self-sustainable fashion industry will help us target and provide job employment for the Cameroonian young men luring them away from away from the money bates set by terrorist groups like Boko Haram to use them for the advance of their agendas.

The Lionceaux line is manufactured with materials made of 80-100% cotton. Lionceaux plans to manufacture all its clothing in Cameroon, West Africa. Our Kickstarter backers will get rewarded with a variety of gifts from our current catalogues.

Kickstarter campaigns operate under an “all-or-nothing” funding model so if the Lionceaux Design project doesn’t reach its goal at the end of 33 days then it might be years before you could see it on the market. To follow our project, be sure to find us on facebook.com/lionceauxdesigns and @lionceauxdesign on twitter and spread the word to your social media networks. Consider donating as little as $10 to help the Lionceaux project come to life. If you decide to back up our clothing line, you could be among the first in the world to wear clothes designed by Lionceaux The WHT LION.
