M.Bassy opening with Debra Shaw & Alessandro Sgobbio
Renowned artists Debra Shaw and Alessandro Sgobbio from Paris marked the starting point for a new space of intercultural exchange and encounter. Created by and for M.Bassy, the international salon creates a platform for African and Afro-inspired artists and their culture.
In the 90s, Debra Shaw belonged to the most popular models in business, with appearances not only on the runway but also in films such as Robert Atlan’s “Pret-A-Porter” or George Michael’s music video for “Fast Love”. She worked for Dior, Paco Rabanne, Givenchy, Jean Paul Gaultier and Karl Lagerfeld and is still a highly sought-after fashion consultant. Now she focuses her energies on her singing career.
The debut of her new album was recently published.
