Unsung Designers of Africa

Hello luvs,

It’s Monday and as you know it, it is time for a new blogpost. If this is your first time checking my blog up, feel free to leave me a comment and subscribe to receive new updates. Now that the formalities are out of the way, let’s talk get into the details of this dress.

There are a lot reasons why this dress is easily one of my favorite this season. It can easily be worn as a day-to-night outfit (check out where the buttons stops, and the plunging neckline). It can easily be worn to work, a date night, or an evening with the girls.

As you may have known, I’ve recently traveled to my hometown of Lome in Togo, West Africa (blogpost here). During my visit, I was able to reconnect with my old tailor who has been sewing my clothes since high school. His handwork is still amazing as in my memories, and I’m writing this blogpost thinking of how he used to hold me and my friends down in the fashion department. This outfit cost me about $20 including the fabric that I was able to handpick myself.

This post is an appreciation to seamstress and tailors of my hometown who may not be popular on Instagram or Facebook, may not get the recognition the deserve but are uber talented.

Look for similar looks here:
