According to internet sources, traditional regalia is an official and special outfit with decorations, especially worn during formal ceremonies. The traditional regalia in most cultures is a cherished garment which carries the spirit and culture of the people. Like every other traditional regalia, the Toghu or Atoghu carries a vibrant reflection of the people of the North West region in Cameroon and their history.
Traditional to Contemporary Native Cameroon Toghu
The elaborate styles of the Toghu outfits are very unique to the Cameroonian people. Each outfit is a representation of personal style. For men, the go-to style is the typical agbada style. Meanwhile, for women, there are several options. It could be a long or short gown, wrapper and “bubba” blouse, or a skirt with a matching top. A toghu head tie usually will look great to complete the look but is not always necessary.
