View our gallery of photos from DRC's Kinshasa Fashion Week 2014.

The second annual Kinshasa Fashion Week took place last week, July 18 - 20, at the DRC capital city's Shark Club. Collections from both local and international designers were showcased on the first two days, while the event's last day was designated to an expo open to the public.
