Definitely hot: Public figures who wear African with swag

It’s a fact: African fashion is becoming part of international fashion scenes ánd we are spotting more international public personalities wearing African designs. Take rapper Eve for example, who made an appearance wearing an African printed tunic and Solange who appears in African prints frequently. It is safe to say that in the last five years, African fashion is showing more versatility while not only producing traditional styles but modern collections too. Think of designers like Mina EvansWana SamboBoxing Kitten, Christie Brown who use Western styles and combine it with African elements.  Find out which celebs were spotted wearing African fabulously. 

One of the popular celebrities outside Africa who was spotted frequently with Ankara is Beyonce’s younger sister Solange Knowles. She has become a loyal ‘African wearer’. Other personalities, such as Alicia Keyes, Fergie, and Beyoncé were spotted wearing African print by Boxing Kitten. Though Boxing Kitten is an American based fashion brand, it does produce trendy clothing made of Ankara. They are made of Dutch (Vlisco) Wax to be precise. Find out more below.

We love to see how African (inspired) fashion is developing. However, the picture below is a perfect example of how not to wear it. Total disaster! Chai!

A way NOT to wear African

Below is a clip from the Be Bold show about Christie Brown, a Ghanaian fashion brand. Watch how this fantastic brand has gone global.

Some simply find African fashion by buying the fabric and finding a tailor to fix a whole outfit. For those that are looking for ready made African clothing. Below are sites where they are available.
