Africa: Fashion Goes Wild With Color
The Ankra style is a must have as far as African fashion goes. It’s the west meets east trend of fashion at the moment. It has found its way into the western world and is now mainstream popping up on the red carpets and runways everywhere. The fabric is used to make beautiful modern designs by high fashion designers. With African designers like Deola Sagoe and Jewel By Lisa on the rise with their chic, feminine and fun pieces, be ready for the Ankara to take over making a permanent global name for African fashion.
And P.S., when it comes African Fashion a head wrap is a must have accessory. The bigger and brighter the fabric, the better. In Africa, the head wrap tells a story. It says something about your social class, spirituality, wealth and overall prosperity. However, you can pull off this look even if you don’t call Africa home. Just consider it a fun and funky fashion statement. And with all of the bright colors and bold patterns, you’ll want more than one! With that said, I definitely need to get started on my own head wrap collection. -Lady Agyeman, Contributing Writer
