“Started with $191”
SWVR’s Creative Director, Shek Tarawallie hailing from Sierra Leone, has taken his brand to new heights. Founded in 2010, Swavor has been dropping some of the most exclusive, unique, and fashionable pieces to keep your closet fresh all year round. Shek has been dropping pieces here and there but this Fall ’18 collection will be his first full collection in collaboration with Tim Smith.
“This day marks the beginning of our new journey. I won’t get into the specifics but if you have been a fan of SWVR fka ‘Swavor’, you may have noticed distinctive changes in our designs. No more clutter. No more meaningless artwork or redundant morphs of photos found on Pinterest. In the past, my philosophy was to compete with the higher end brands. Imagine trying to duel it out with Givenchy or Balmain with no investor. Yikes. What is more important to me however is the symbolism. The symbolism for what a brand stands for. The underdogs who took $191.78 and took on the clothing industry. Building that connection with our supporters through our story and design is the new motive.” – Shek.
