Swiss-born to African diplomatic parents of Gabon, Raphael Gondjout Hervo-Akendengue, now Djamee, discovered his passion for the fashion and music industry at an early age. At seventeen, he was accepted into Esmod, a prestigious fashion school in Paris, where he presented his first collection of hand made spectacle clothes at the George Pompidou Center. His unique and edgy-urban style was immediately recognized and showcased in European trade shows, television, and radio Networks. He also received an Award and a grant by the city of Versailles France, to present a full collection.
In 1999, Djamee's hand made leather hats caught the attention of the late artist Prince. These pieces were sold on Prince's website.
In the mid nineties Djamee moved to New York, to learn the other side of the fashion industry at NYU. After gathering much experience, he became the Director of the Fashion Division at Stanley Kaplan Talent Agency, and consequently founded Djamee Models.
Inspired by his family, cultural roots and political environment in Gabon, after being behind the scenes for so many years Djamee, has re-emerged with his latest line of accessories, StuddedSpikes. The designer; modeling and Talent Agency owner; Digital Marketer is ready to bring a gust of energy to the fashion world and says, "I can start designing again now, after all Christian Dior started his line at the age of 45." His new designs are available on his website http://studdedspikes.com and on a store of the same name StuddedSpikes on Teespring.
