I have been blogging about other parts Africa but I am ashamed that I have never taken time out to share some light on Congo. My trip to central Africa has taught me alot about Congo, I have gained more insight into their fashion and beauty culture, from  Sapeurs style to bold prints. I also had the opportunity to snap beautiful Congolese ladies backstage at a fashion show, and I am so proud that with all the difficulties these women faced during the war, they continue to do well and shine. I noticed that their style is highly influenced by western trends, but they sure do love their bold make-up. Check out some the ladies below
