The Brand...

SWAVOR was created in 2010 in Maryland (USA) by Shek Tarawali (22) and I Christofer Brito (24). We met in college and got together to launch a clothing line with a starting budget of $ 191 and two versions of the now original t -shirt.

Since then, we have managed to develop a real personality for the brand that which is a harmonic combination between a very rural life style and hints of classicism. We have extended the product range to sweaters, jackets, pants and accessories and the brand is growing every day. Products become increasingly sophisticated every season, not only when it comes to our silhouettes but also in terms of details and the materials being used.

Throughout the past four years the collections were mainly for men and unisex, but this spring/summer season we’re launching pieces which are specifically designed for women.

For this collection, we were inspired by an artist named Ai Weiwei. We integrated and interpreted the ideas that can be seen in his documentary "Never Sorry," in our own way.

SWAVOR is currently sold on its website and e-commerce and in the Kickk Spott shop in Washington DC. 1Capitol Cover4Glory Cover 6Constin Cover4Glory Cover

Who is Chris Brito?Christofer Brito

Let me introduce myself: My name is Chris Brito, I am 24 years old and I'm originally from Cape Verde. I grew up in the USA before starting my studies in fashion design at ESMOD Rennes and now Paris, where I am currently completing my last year. I draw my inspiration from cultures around the world and I focus mainly on art and the messages it conveys.

My vision is that SWAVOR continues to establish itself as a recognized street wear brand. We would like introduce ourselves to France and continue to evolve and go even further with this concept.

The Project

We would like to host the first SWAVOR fashion show in Paris, France which will be accessible to all who are interested – this means you can be a part of it as well! The parade will symbolize the official launch of the brand in France and the celebration of the new SWAVOR woman. The goal is to truly bring fashion into the streets and emphasize the word "urban" for this spring / summer collection.

But this will not be a fashions how like any other : The idea is to organize something different and exciting. We aim to incorporate the metropolitan public, not only in regards to style, but also by integrating the spontaneity of the city into our show – truly bringing together all the different aspects of city life into one single show.

This presentation will be a cool and unique experience, which promises to be a "rarely –seen-before event" and most of all fun - but pssshht .... I will not say more so as not to ruin the surprise! Come see if you want to know more !

To make this happen, we need your help

For now, we would like to collect 600 euros to cover the basics.

The money will be used for …

… a site and the backstage to get the models ready before the show.

… setting up lighting.

… a sound system.

… publicity.

… make up and hair.

If we manage to get more money than expected, we will use the remaining money to improve lighting quality and increase the size of the site in which the models will be dressed.

Furthermore, if we have

800 euros : Amazing ! We could have a professional photographer and videographer to properly document and then broadcast the whole event on the internet for our fans that were unable to attend the fashion show in person.

1000 euros : Even more spectacular !! We could include an introduction with an even more surprising and cool effect. Thank you for allowing us to realize this dream..

1500 euros : Time to party -- An evening to celebrate this special and important day for the brand. You are all invited to celebrate the victory with us.  

How to attend the fashion show and get goodies?

To attend the parade, visitors are invited to make a donation of 10 euros to be informed of the secret place and time of the fashion show on the eve of the big day.

The exact date will be communicated to participants two weeks before via email.
