Shopping in Saint-Louis

Anyone up for shopping? Ha, who am I kidding, we are ALWAYS up for shopping…right!?!?  And a great place to shop in Senegal is Saint-Louis.  The Island life in Saint-Louis is unique to most places in the country.  Saint-Louis has a VERY artistic feel to it…it just seems that everyone in Saint-Louis has a certain “creative” spirit.

One of my dearest friends, Rama Diaw, is an up and coming fashion designer living and working in Saint Louis.  She has a beautiful shop  full of clothing that is “a la mode” with a mix of african wax print.  She is headed to Paris this summer to be a part of “Labo Ethnik”.  A HUGE fashion event promoting African Fashion Designers (Google it).

If you are headed to Saint-Louis anytime soon be sure and make a trip to visit her shop. Or maybe, even better, lets organize a “Gazelle Skirt” girls weekend and all go shopping!

Here are a few photos of items that are available at Rama’s shop.
