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.
