Cynthia Tabe is a London based Cameroon born Public Relations (PR) fop and African brand scout for boutiques with a particular interest in the promotion, marketing, branding and the development of the African Fashion Industry and the Cameroon entertainment industry.

Her passion for these industries kick-started in 2008 when she started the “Dulce Camer” blog, a blog that discovers, promotes, and encourages young and old talents within the creative industry in Cameroon to do better and to excel at their craft. 5 Years on, Dulce Camer is still one of the most known and most visited entertainment blogs giving access to emerging names through regular posts and the annual “Dulce Camer Top 50 Talent” to watch list compiled every January 1st.

From blogging came the next phase of her passion – fashion. Also founded in 2008 was the luxury annual fashion event in London termed “CamerCouture Fashion Showcase” initially created to promote and educate the main public about the fashion design talents from her native Cameroon within an environment that was never before witnessed of an “African” fashion show. The passion and creative juices flowed well throughout the CamerCouture team and the end result brought to life months of hard work and careful detailing. The show later opened its doors to design talents from across Africa and through this show she worked with brands including Kosibah, Eki Orleans, Martial Tapolo, KiRette Couture, Anggy Haif, Côté Minou and Cannes based brand; Olivia Ervi. The premiere of the CamerCouture Fashion Showcase was published on BBC online platform gaining many encouraging reviews and feedback. Other publication/press coverage of the event included New African Woman magazine, Amina, Fashizblack online.
