Over the years, the African print has evolved so as to be incorporated in the fashion world from dresses to jewelry to furniture’s. Ankara just keeps on making its way in our lifestyle I remember the days when Ankara was taken to be an elderly woman outfit and you could rarely see ladies in customized outfits made from Ankara.

Ankara styles have become the in thing nowadays from high end celebrities like Beyoncé, Lupita and Rihanna making Ankara inspired outfits part of the wardrobe to the runways, where designers are showcasing Ankara inspired work.

I still think there so much to be done with the Ankara fabrics and I cannot wait to see where the evolution is going.

Personally I just keep on falling in love with outfits made from Ankara and this particular one is no exception. The checkered inspired fabric complete with different color palette has to be one thing that I’m falling for, it just speaks art and creativity and to some point sheds light on the African diversity.
