As a child I had always dreamed of wearing garments that incorporated Ankara fabric into wearable pieces in the western world. Over the past several years this has become a reality. Many fashion forward African designers are cropping up all over the world. Their vibrant and rich designs are creating a refreshing aesthetic in the world of fashion. In fact, African fashion has become a hot niche in the international fashion industry. Below are some of the garments and accessories that speak to the Africanah in me. You can find all of these looks on Etsy. Enjoy!
