On the 24th of October, I was privileged enough to be able to attend the launch of Elixir Magazine, a new fashion, lifestyle and culture magazine that is based right here in Dakar.
Headed by CEO,Stéphane Tourné- photographer (who has shot the likes of supermodel, Liya Kebede, actor, Jake Gyllenhaal and International Senegal-born musician, Youssou Ndour, to name a few) , Elixir Magazine is the first of its kind. It is unique, contemporary and enticingly innovative. The magazine highlights an array of concepts and subjects pertaining to the emerging Dakar fashion scene and provides a platform for original artists, designers and models to showcase their ideas all with a purely Senegalese approach.
The magazine is blossoming and is sure to take Dakar and the rest of the world by storm. This culturally diverse magazine is a must-read for all people in Senegal and abroad!
