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.

Ankara can do so much more than casual ensembles, coordinate your outfit with matching accessories.

If you do not own a pair of shift dress in your closet, this might just be the perfect excuse to own one.

While attending #AMA2018, Tracee adorned herself in outfits made by black designers. One of her most head-turning looks for the Tuesday night event was an Ankara floor length dress designed by Cameroonian designer Lavie By CK.  The vibrant deep V-neck princess fishtail dress from the brand’s Royal Matrimony collection accentuated Tracee’s curves perfectly and gave the needed dramatic effect for the Award show with its bulky double layers of fabric at the sleeves and midi region flowing down to the ground.


Wedding ready in a pinch!
