Style doesn’t have to be expensive before it is considered a “Bea” look.
There are some fashion and style that can be termed exotic; exotic because its unusual and just a select few can be seen adorning such looks.
The African print aka Ankara can be termed exotic too, it’s so exotic that many countries in Africa are just buying into the idea but that’s not the fun part.
As the true Africans that we are, we never let anything good pass us by and that’s why we embraced the African print with all our might and it’s even so amazing that the fabric is quite affordable.
The prints which came to the continent centuries ago have been introduced to several other market asides Nigeria; for instance it was acceptable as a daily wear in countries like Togo, Benin Republic and some parts of Ghana not forgetting big brother Nigeria however the acceptance was only for a select few in Nigeria – the elderly.
Things have since changed from the way they used to be and now when you walk on the streets of Lagos any day anytime you would find people rocking their Ankara without a care in the world and it’s not just in old styles but stylish and modern cuts.
The Ankara prints are a reflection of who we are as a people and that’s why many of the prints are filled with motifs and patterns that showcase our environment.
While it’s fun learning about the patterns and motifs etc. it’s even more fun that we know that when we have great tailors we can give them an Ankara fabric with an amazing style.
This designer would tailor the Ankara to suit us and we would get a bea-rific look.
