Michèle Pouani is the brain and body behind Pyromaniac by mp. She hails from Yaoundé Cameroon, where her passion for clothes stems from her sweet upbringing in a family where Mom is a well-known and locally acclaimed fashion designer/entrepreneur.As she could not have chosen a more “fitting” path to embark on, her career began in 2002 in Paris where she graduated with a Fashion Design and Technology diploma.
After her French degree she worked for various maisons de couture in the likes of Isabelle Beaumenay and Allali Ferouz among others. To cultivate her creative and sharp spirit, she made a bold move to Vancouver B.C. in 2006 where she acquired a diploma in International Business Management. Michèle later relocated to Montréal to continue her Business apprenticeship while working with the renowned Quebec designer Isabelle Elie. Through it all she was profoundly inspired to craft her very own creations and started sowing the seeds of Pyromaniac by mp.Now introducing Michelle's debut collection .......
