Senegalese brand and Beyoncé fave Tongoro Studio just announced it’s first Studio X collab and they are not holding anything back with this one. Their first collaborative collection is with none other than fashion influencer and ex Grazia editor Tamu McPherson of All the Pretty Birds.

In the first promo video Tongoro teased on Instagram, we get a sneak peek behind the scenes of the creation of the collection. We see Tamu and Sarah Diouf of Tongoro consulting on what looks like a pretty noteworthy piece.

Tamu McPherson shared the video on her page as well saying:

I’m honored and grateful to share my collaboration with @tongorostudio for the launch of the ‘Studio X’ Series. I met founder @dioufsarah many years ago in Paris, and I was immediately inspired by her brilliant, sweet energy. As I got to know her better, her resourcefulness would impress me time and time again, as would her determination and courage. I often ask myself is there anything that she can’t do, once she sets her intentions?

My heart is full from the time we spent working together in Dakar last week, and I can’t wait for you to see the collection which launches in September.


We anticipate a collection filled with vibrant prints and head-turning styles perfect for killing it from daytime to dusk .

The Tongoro STUDIO x Tamu collection launches in September and will officially be available to shop at the brand’s US Popup on September 6.
