Trending Tuesday: Ankara Fabric Inspired Clothing 🇳🇬

Hello Everyone 🖐🏾!! This weeks trending topics focuses on Ankara fabric.  African print, popularly known as Ankara, has gained popularity in the global fashion scene since 2010 with its tribal-like patterns and motifs. Since it’s ascension in global fashion, many designers have taken on their interpretation of this trend.  Little known history fact surround the vibrant eclectic print:  Ankara was formerly known as Dutch wax print. It was originally manufactured by the Dutch for the Indonesian textile market.  But, by mistake or design, these prints garnered significantly more interest in West African than in Indonesia.  Recognizing this opportunity, the Dutch decided to capitalize off this fluke, and focus on West Africa.  As such, the prints changed to reflect African culture and lifestyle more.  African print was henceforth born.  Being from Africa (As you all know) I’m not only here for this trend (and have been since the age of birth…more so by design than choice, but I digress), I live for this trend, and to those just jumping on the bandwagon I say “what took you so long”??  What do you guys think, are you here for this trend?
