Bandia 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.

      Tongoro's designer, Sarah Diouf, created the Bandia as the ultimate day-to-night cocktail dress. A contemporary play on a classic Kimono style—its neckline is cut to a deep V, it features maxi bell sleeves and ruched high-leg slit detail. This best-selling style is loved for its ultra form-flattering fit and uncompromising femininity. Wear with the brand's Bara Earrings and a bare décolletage for a minimal, yet breathtaking evening look.

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.”
