Everybody loves Ankara! And even though the wax print fabric did not originate in Africa, the vibrant prints have become a part of our cultural identity.
Each day, style stars, BellaStylistas and #AsoEbiBella Style Slayers, use different unique designs to show off the versatility of Ankara.
This new series is a celebration of Ankara – a fashion staple that remains a constant in our wardrobes, despite fashion’s revolving door of trends. Every week we will share the most fabulous styles we spot to celebrate the creativity of these stylish folk we feature, inspire your next look and for your viewing pleasure.
