Congolese Fashion Designer Unveils Condom Collection To Spread A Safe S*x Message

Felicite Luwungu, a Congolese fashion designer, is promoting safe s*x with a collection of clothes made of condoms that she hopes will help combat HIV/AIDS in her country.

Luwungu started making her condom line, which includes strapless evening gowns and tops, after the HIV/AIDS epidemic hit close to home.

"I have lost loved ones to HIV - that's what inspired me to do this," she told the Thomson Reuters Foundation by phone from the capital, Kinshasa. "The message that I hope people will apply is to be prudent."

Luwungu, 40, displays her work in runway shows and exhibitions. When she finishes the condom collection, she plans to present it at a large fashion show next year.
