Ankara Fashion

If you asked me why I love African fashion, my thoughts would race to growing up in Kenya, the cultural beauty that is abstractly preserved and portrayed in the prints. My childhood memory of  ‘Kitenge’ (how we call African print in Kenya) is of resilience, hard work and the power of hope that I saw every woman live life though while beautifully dressed in ‘Kitenge’. African print never goes out of fashion, it’s something that is passed down through generations. Looking for latest African print style, then keep reading this article for some timeless Ankara fashion – latest African print styles. (Shop Here)

The beauty of African print/ Ankara fashion

One sensational thing about African print is the charm and the  beauty of the prints. The boldness, vibrance, the feel and the radiation of different energies that each print portrays.  So when I design the clothes all I want to convey is the happiness and the abundance of good energy in each garment.

My story

There is something about telling my story that is so scary.  As an introverted person this something have always struggled with. But I find that through working with African prints I’m not afraid to let my soul bare and exposed. Telling a part  my story through every single piece. It’s intriguing how creativity can help in building confidence in such a unique and graceful way. Have become bold, colourful and I am myself. Making this dress what I wanted to convey is the power of simply being me and the fascination of new. (Dress link)

Joyful colours

This Ankara peplum top is a pop of  joyful spring colours. The pint is like a trip to the marvels of nature, an eye catching  fresh spring bloom against oceanic waters. Simply cut, with details to add flare and personality to what would have been a common top. When making the top all I could Imagine was a sunny day, strawberry ice cream and just letting the  serenity of a Summer afternoon wash over. The top is perfect for all body types. (Top link)

    Wow….these photos, prints and YOU are just absolutely drop dead gorgeous. I lived in Montmarte, Paris for quite some time and the African culture there was just wonderful. The women dressed in all sorts of African prints and I loved waiting at my favorite cafe for them to pass by in all their glory. Thank you for sharing!
