All Hail Our ANKARA, their TRIBAL PRINTS!!

I remember the days when we (i.e. Africans) used to be so eager to look westernized. well, levels don change now! Hollywood is eager to look African right now! This might have something to do with designers like Lisa Folawiyo (Jewel by Lisa) & Lanre Da Silva (LDA) were amongst the African designers to showcase at New York Fashion Week '10. It doesn't matter what it's called, whether na 'ankara' or 'tribal prints', the point is, it is HAWT! HAWT!! HAWT!! at the moment. Here are some of the stars who have rocked these prints with pride!

Vanessa Mdee
Beyonce Knowles

Gwen Stefani
Solange Knowles

Kelis

Victoria Rowell

Estelle

Ofcourse, not only the celebrities have rocked ankara! We, Africans too are rocking it!
