My latest fascination has been African Wear. I love its vibrancy, bright color, bold patterns and uniqueness of patterns. There are various names used worldwide to describe this clothing: Ankara, Kente, Kitenge, Woodin, Hollandis name it.
Ankara is a cotton or cotton blend material that is found mostly in West and Central Africa. It is a light and long lasting material that was initially considered too traditional and was saved for weddings and other traditional ceremonies.
However today’s young Africans have decided to blend this lovely material with modern design and the loveliest collection of outfits have been created from this thought.
Have a look:
Get a good tailor and try these designs out 🙂

I’m seriously considering a wardrobe overhaul, away with the old in with the ANKARA!!!!
