Fashion Life In Senegal

Senegal has a long history of being  one of the fashion hubs of Africa. With its dazzling bou bou dresses and flowing kaftans, Senegal is really a nation that prides itself in it’s fashion culture.  During the muslim feast of Eid al-Adha fashion shows are held to mark the occasion. This is where the country’s top designers get to showcase their latest collections.

In Senegal traditional garments are continuously reinvented to express the latest trends and styles at the moment.  This is very busy time for tailors and seamstresses as everyone is trying to out dress the other in their best outfit.



Senegalese say that looking your best is the highest form of showing respect and displaying your creativity.
