This week I had the honor to meet one of Africa’s well know high fashion designer Elie Kuame. He is a designer who specializes in haute couture clothing. Elie Kuame launched a fashion show of his ready-to-wear collection Thursday 23 at the Radisson Blu in Brazzaville. The theme was to promote African women. African women working tirelessly to contribute to the continent. As a YALI and deeply invested in gender issues, I enjoyed every second of the fashion show and had the honor to personally meet Elie Kuame. What a Christmas present!!! Before we dive into that, here are a few images of how the Fashion show went.

The venue was beautiful and luxurious and took place at the most luxurious hotel in Brazzaville.
