My name is Lucie and my roots are from Congo (Ex-Zaïre) . I am 38 years old and was born in Belgium in the 80’s . Beside a mother ( of a queen & a king) , a fashion student , a sister , a wife , and daughter , I am an extreme passionate woman who can’t help but expressing herself. Altough I have a communication degree , expressing myself verbally has never been my strength. I believe that the best way of telling something is non verbal and I’ m truly convinced that clothes are the best medium to tell your story.
TAMU means sugary in Swahili , the motherlanguage of my mother.
TAMU is about Being yourself by Embracing your difference.
It is a mix of Classic Vintage ( my first love) , exotisme ( my roots) and the Urban Life (my lifestyle).
TAMU works in 2 ways:
The batik technique is why these fabrics are also called wax. This method is originated from Indonesia and makes all this beautiful patterns possible. Due to the way the prints are obtained, it is impossible to make each piece of cloth look exactly the same so they are truly unique. Furthermore the fabric used to make the clothes is cut by hand, so that the print positioning is different on each item meaning each one is one of a kind.
