As Summer in the Sub-Saharan region of Africa holds on for dear life, we dream of tropical destinations where the air is clean, the water warm and clear, cocktails sipped out of coconut bodies and locals basking in the African sun in Mogo By Tongoro.
Tongoro, based in Dakar, Senegal, is a 100% made in Africa label launched in 2016. Its organic growth as a brand has seen it capture the eyes of many an international star and stylist and the hearts of many locals.
The brand presents collections that are of quality, variety and convenience. Tongoro, if anything, is the kind of label you subscribe to when destination living is the norm and packing light is not a concept on the number of bags packed but the dreary seriousness of your clothes.
Tongoro’s ethos involves sourcing materials on the continent and working with local tailors, in a bid to create a new dynamic for Africa-based manufacturing, and fostering economic and social development of artisanal workers in Western Africa.
I’m here for the ethos, as much as I’m here for the fashion. For more information and to view past and current collections, visit www.tongoro.com. You can also follow the label on Instagram via @tongorostudio.
