Madame Adassa by Marsha Vacirca
Fashion has long been a part of her life for as far back as she can remember. As a child, she would watch her grandmother pedaling the old Singer sewing machine fashioning Sunday dresses. Later on her mother opened her first fashion studio with newer versions of these sewing machines creating bridal gowns and tailored suits. There she spent her early years learning the techniques and discipline it would take to launch a fashion label of her own: Madame Adassa.
In 1998 Marsha relocated to the U.S. There she took a break from fashion while she earned two college degrees and spend some time in corporate America before deciding to introduce her first love to the world.
An ode to her grandmother the fashion label through its’ designs shares parts of her Jamaican culture: the vibrant, exotic, glamorous with tad bits of risqué elements. One can expect too to see heavy European prepotencies (the island’s earlier settlers) coupled with notes of Caribbean flair. A brand to watch, Madame Adassa’s f/w 2018 collection celebrates the strength, determination and beauty of all women.
