Mason was born in Cameroon to an American father and a Cameroonian mother and raised in France. His mother was a seamstress and dressmaker, but was murdered when Mason was 4. Inspired by his mother’s work he decided to work in fashion and follow in his mother’s footsteps.
After moving to France to live with his aunt and uncle. However in an abusive household, Mason suffered a seizure where he landed in a coma – when he awoke, he was blind.
