Local female celebrities have embraced Ankara, which was previously ordinarily left for our mothers and aunties, as a fashion staple in their wardrobe. It’s now become such a fashion statement and is commonly worn by celebrities during red carpet events.

Ankara may look like a simple outfit but it isn’t one that you can pull off without the style and confidence it needs. It’s a “loud” fabric and as such to rock it well you need to maintain a certain poise. Whether mixed with other fabrics or just plain, Ankara brings out the WOW factor.
