Meni Mbugha brings pygmy style to city life in DR Congo

Meni Mbugha brings pygmy style to city life in DR CongoBusy in a dim Kinshasa studio, Meni Mbugha chooses natural pigments in black and red to decorate clothes printed by silkscreen to bring the artwork of the pygmy forest people to the bustling city. Mbugha, 33, creates dresses, skirts, tops, jackets and scarves bearing the floral patterns, stippled lines and curvy flourishes that the ethnic minority people living in the Democratic Republic of Congo traditionally carve into bark.
