Get to know the founder 

'Ever since I was a little girl, I have always been passionate about Haute Couture. During my Marketing studies at Hec Montreal, I found a way to make my dream come true through entrepreneurship.'

Coming from a mixed family, with a Senegalese mother and a French father, Aminata Planchon grew up in a creative and stimulating environment. As a child, she was often confronted with ethnic issues. It has always been important to her that people see her for who she is without trying to put her in a box or a society label. 
At the end of 2016, she founded Atelier APL. Through this brand, she has the desire to mix cultures and defy ethnic barriers. 

'For instance, our handmade, African print wrap pants are inspired from the Japanese kimono. I like to mix cultures in my own way when I design. My message is that we are One - One big Human race.'
