Ankara may have made its debut as a fabric used for making clothes, but it has since long moved from that stereotype. Over the years, this African fabric has evolved into being used to make other accessories. These accessories are so beautiful they can be rocked with different clothing patterns.

For us fashion lovers, we can’t get enough of fashion shows. The 2017 African Fashion and Design Week was held in Lagos from 13 to 15 October. Living true to its name, the fashion show saw some of the best designers from the continent showcasing their designs.

Ankara has come to stay! Technically, this beautiful African material has been around since forever. Our grandmothers and great grandmothers rocked them beautifully in their youth. The only difference is, Ankara has gained global recognition in the fashion world in recent times.
