The Darfur Sartorialist: Grace and colors of Darfur, Sudan.

Now, this is a project I follow and love for some time.

It’s called The Darfur Sartorialist, and basically – it’s a story about a surprise. Pedro Matos is a humanitarian aid worker living in Darfur for the past 4 years. His facebook blog reflects his own surprise with the men and women he found in this remote region of Sudan, and how fashionable people turn out to be in all corners of the world.

Darfur is fashionable. Beyond the conflict and the images engraved in our minds lies a proud people wearing colour combinations unlikely in the trendy West. They have grace and style, and a unique sense for colors – and happiness.

It’s beautiful and inspirational.
