Inspired by a long trip through Latin America, young designer Emma Francois decided to part ways with economic anthropology and dive headfirst into the world of fashion. Her fledgling label, Sessun, debuted in 1995, and is now based in Marseille in the south of France. Designing from a fabric-first perspective, her unique collections are impregnated with a feminine, urban style. Sessun uses organic fibers and fair-trade practices as often as possible, to emphasize the importance of moving ethically within a creative sphere.
