Is Sierra Leone the Next Paris?

I recently stumbled upon an article about a fashion designer who grew up in Sierra Leone during civil war riots, left the country to study fashion in Paris and is now designing clothes in her home country. Her name is Katrina Manson. The article, linked here, calls her photos "fresh, the sort of thing that Paris Vogue would do but cheaper". I didnt get a chance to look at her clothing for sale but each item varies from $30-$100.

What do you think of her designs? Would you buy any of the items in the photos?
