For the second year consecutive, CFD students participated in the Mission Mozambique competition in collaboration with the Brazilian University Claretiano. 
Inspired by the African culture, Students designed prints for t-shirts and bags. The winning designs will be mass produced and sold accross Brazil, and the money collected will reverted towards Mission Mozambique.

Here is a brief description for one the winning design made by our student Sumaya, BA in Fashion Design Student.
My design for the Mozambique competition was inspired by four different animals: elephant, leopard, tiger and lion. I combined all the unique features of these animals in one design.
At first, I drew an elephant silhouette and then in the middle I placed the African map. The lion represents pride, in order to show the pride of Africa, I also placed the lions face inside the African map and in the end, I added a black and golden spot of the leopard all over the elephant shape. I painted a tiger print.
The idea was to represent the importance of nature in the African culture.
