Dubbed the Wikipedia of young African designers, Industrie Africa launched a little over two years ago with a mission to challenge the perception of fashion on the continent. A virtual showroom of sorts, the site highlights the full breadth of African design talent with a directory of over 80 brands from 24 different African countries. Today Industrie Africa who have always been a champion for African creatives have launched a brand new capsule collection with cult favorite Senegalese brand Tongoro and it is beyond!
Industrie Africa’s collaboration with Tongoro is beyond just a covetable, limited-edition collection. It is a meeting of minds between two made-in-Africa brands, representing a close-knit industry with a common goal: to advance our African fashion community through elevated ideals, and sustainably contribute to its long-term development.” Tongoro is an African brand that dresses globally, and that will hopefully help the ‘Made In Africa’ label to become a gage of quality.
According to a statement from the brand:
This holiday season, Industrie Africa, the leading luxury e-comm platform in Africa has teamed up with Senegal-based brand TONGORO to create a limited edition capsule collection that will be sold exclusively on Industrie Africa.
In total, the capsule consists of 8 best-selling styles in exclusive prints – two dresses, two jumpsuits, two bags, a matching set and a pair of earrings. The price point for the collection is extremely affordable, ranging from $100 – $300.
