Dakar Fashion Week Part 1: Senegalese Designers (Co-authored with Jenni Keating)

Saturday night’s show was a great event for Dakar and Senegalese fashion. Hosted by Adama Paris at the Hotel des Almadies, the event was packed out with Dakar’s most fashionable (which made for some GREAT people watching!) Photographers, flashing lights and even some local celebrities.

Five of the night’s 14 designers were Senegalese: Mame Fagueye Ba, Sophie Nzinga Sy, Nabou Creation, Lamine Diasse and the event’s host, Adama Paris. ¬†Sophisticated and colorful described many of their looks – from full men’s suits to more traditional evening gowns and headwraps to the modern and trendy looks of Adama Paris.
