Boubou gowns by Madam Wokie

In my opinion, nothing shows off the grace and elegance of an African woman like a Boubou gown. From Senegal, to the Gambia, Sierra Leone to Mali, the Boubou gown has a way of accentuating the curves of the traditional African woman, while modestly concealing her assets.  I am in love with the new range of gown by Sierra Leonean fashion house, Madam Wokie. Produced in a range of fabrics and prints, the gowns are perfect for an afternoon on the beach, brunch with the girls, or even formal dinner.

Birds flying high you know how I feel
Sun in the sky you know how I feel
Breeze driftin’ on by you know how I feel

It’s a new dawn
It’s a new day
It’s a new life
For me
And I’m feeling good

Fish in the sea you know how I feel
River running free you know how I feel
Blossom on the tree you know how I feel

Dragonfly out in the sun you know what I mean, don’t you know
Butterflies all havin’ fun you know what I mean
Sleep in peace when day is done
That’s what I mean

And this old world is a new world
And a bold world
For me
Stars when you shine you know how I feel
Scent of the pine you know how I feel
Oh freedom is mine
And I know how I feel”
― Nina Simone
