MADE IN AFRICA
The fashion designer Rama Diaw from Saint Louis (Senegal) has been creating modern African fashion and accessories for a few years now and uses native techniques and materials like batik and indigo fabrics. All materials she uses are directly from Senegal, Mauretania and Mali. This year, Rama Diaw is presenting a fashion show which connects contemporary creations and traditional Senegalese items form her region and the city of Saint Louis, a world heritage city . A second show “African child” will be dedicated to children. Their wellbeing and their education are key challenges for the development of the emerging continent. Rama is working daily in partnership with women from villages in the surrounding of Saint-Louis, contributing via entrepreneurship to increase their family revenues.
The fashion show will take place Friday, Saturday and Sunday at 2:30 and at 4:30 pm next to the Havana Club.
