A company lead by Marcel Ouedraogo

Marcel Ouedraogo is passionate about styling, fashion and creation. After several years of apprenticeship in sewing workshops in Burkina Faso, he decided to launch his own brand in 2001 under the label Prince D.

Since 2016, Marcel Ouedraogo has been the president of the Union des Professionnels du Textile et de l’Habillement du Centre (UPROTEX-HAC), a cluster which aims to promote African textiles in general and Faso Danfani in particular. This internationally renowned designer, like other designers and fashion creators, turned to couture out of necessity and discovered a passion that allows him to impose himself today and promote the culture of Burkina Faso. He participates in several training courses and exhibitions nationally and internationally.
