No one can deny how fabulous an African print looks likes, it adds color and brings a lot of vibrancy when paired with anything or worn alone.

The African Fabric also known as Ankara has become a means of identification for Africans. Stella McCartney could not resist the use of these cotton fabric that comes in different designs and color for the debut of her Spring/Summer 2018 Ready To Wear Collection which was showcased at Paris SS18 two days ago.
The Designer mixed and matched the Ankara fabric with washed denim and white cotton color neck line which is a refurbished style that has been in existence In Africa and also similarly worn by Rihanna when she visited the white house.
Although the other pieces in the collection have a mix and feel of Glamour and outdoor wear, the designs made from the Ankara Fabric failed to wow Africans, but on a second note Africans are more familiar with the use of the fabric, hence a different niche of people would appreciate this collection more. Take a look at how Stella McCartney infused the African Print Into Her Collection.
