African Prints have evovled from every day fashion wear to high end haute couture clothing. I absolutely love African Prints (also known as Ankara) and not because I’m an African, but just how fashionable they are. Ankara prints are becoming widely used in fashion these days thus making alot of African fashion designers known globally. From kids to men’s wear, you can never go wrong when it comes to ankara. If you’d like to stand out in your next event/outting, then I recommend getting an ankara outfit.
Knowing a good supplier of the Ankara fabrics and a good seamstress can be of benefit to getting your own custom made outfit(s). However with online stores like Etsy one can be able to find designers who sell ready made clothes or you can have them create a custom order with different style and fabric choices.
Here are some of my favorite designs and styles inspirations.
