The latest Tongoro Studio collection is for a woman who is stylish, who likes to travel and dress comfortably while making a statement. It is a fun sophisticated luxury brand that is dedicated to the rising of Africa.

(Here is an extract from an interview I did with Sarah Diouf , founder of TONGORO)

I grew up on the continent. I believe some things unconsciously fed and left a print in my mind, and now have an impact on how I see and do everything. My thing has always been image; I have always wanted to work in advertising and create imagery you don’t need words for.

I think fashion kind of happened to me revealing itself as a beautiful accessory to create powerful images, but never a substitute. African fashion the way I see It, is a result of a clash between my cultural heritage and also every part of the world I step into.
