Ankara garb now comes in several natty designs, and the good thing is that you don’t have to empty your account before you are able to get one.
The popularity of Ankara fabric is as a result of the pride with which many Ghanaians and Africans alike are now wearing them. This is the reason why they are still hot at socials and on the runway.
Also Africans in the Diaspora are showing a unique sense of fashion and their connection to Africa by wearing these beautiful attires.
Nowadays, when it comes to fabric, it seems to be either Ankara or nothing, whether we are talking about gowns, skirts or blouses. Tops, trousers, camisoles and any item you can think of are from Ankara fabric. Thanks to our designers,
Ankara has come to stay. This is because they keep making remarkable creations with Ankara and the results are fabulous!
In addition to their use in outfits, these African prints are used for interior decorations like window blinds, door curtain, wall décor etc.
