As Black History Month comes to an end, I want to dedicate this post to the root of my style. The essence of my style is American-inspired and African-infused. At its core is the notable and distinct African wax print or Ankara. The tribe-like motifs on this fabric are a perfect reflection of the beautiful, unique, and diverse cultures in the diaspora. It caters to every country on the continent and branches off to every continent my people reside.
Ankara is a material that is so well produced that embedded in its print is African culture. There’s nothing more remarkable than seeing an Ankara style tailored to suit a person in the culture globally. My introduction to African fashion started with kaba slits ankara styles. It then evolved into dressy styles that are ready to wear. I grow up seeing Ankara as the print of fashion. Whether it was to church, wedding, or funeral, everyone’s clothing was made out of different Ankara prints. To me, Ankara wax print is the fabric of our lives.
