Bolingo Dress


View Size Guide
  • Insider Notes

    • For the holiday season, Tongoro created a limited-edition capsule collection in collaboration with Industrie Africa to re-introduce some of the brand's most irreverent designs.

      The navy-colored Bolingo Dress is a nod to a previous design of Tongoro's that was sported by Beyoncé in Black is King. Its exclusive-to-Industrie Africa speckled dot print is subtle but reminded the designer of fireworks and constellations—which she felt connected to her brand's identity (Tongoro means 'Star' in Sango, which is the Central African Republic primary language, the country where her mother hails from.) This full-length piece features a deep V-neck, balloon sleeves and a cinched waist, and falls to the ankle in an A-line silhouette with two ultra-flattering front slits. Style with an elegant clutch to make this piece party-ready.

      - Back zipper fastening
      - Polyester
      - Artisanally and ethically made by local communities
      - Made in Dakar, Senegal, ships from Senegal

Tongoro was founded in 2016 by Sarah Diouf, with sustainability at the forefront of the brand’s priorities. Counting none other than Beyoncé as a fan, the brand’s eye-catching ready-to-wear pieces are created by artisans in Senegal using age-old techniques inherited from past generations. Each style is designed for the Tongoro girl, who Diouf has described as “feminine, playful, full of character, she’s never afraid of trying new things.”
