So last weekend I travelled over the border to Guinea and its illustrious capital – Conakry. I know this blog is a celebration of Freetown fashion, but I think I’ve found a close rival in terms of bold west African style.
Rhianna haircut and butterfly sleeves, perfect for a night at the disco.
An daring take on the unitard worn with such confidence by this Tyra Banks lookalike.
I’ll admit we are dealing with a ‘pretty woman’ aesthetic here, but I think this pleather three piece with over-the-knee boots can be forgiven thanks to the fabulous Tina Turner weave. BTW…weaves are pretty much mandatory in this part of the world.
And a stunning piece of jewellery that really sums up all these disco queens.
