we're probably the last people to stumble on ankara/african print heaven, but here's our two cents anyway! we'll be the first to say that we're fascinated by the many, many, MANY forms ankara can take and glad to see three young ladies trying to raise the stakes. yes, everyone and their mama's doing it but it's great to see ready-to-wear that's only an order form away at some of the most competitive prices we've seen so far. let's face it -- they're running a business, and while your tailor in lagos is probably well-able to copy and paste these designs for a fraction of the cost, their prices are not so ridiculous that we can't support them. head on over to their blog or facebook group for more details :) lots and lots of gorgeous pieces! we're especially in serious like with their work collection and how well ankara fits in with other fabrics or more classic pieces like the white shirt. gone are the days (well, at least for us) of being decked out in ankara from head-to-toe! mix-and-match is the monotone :) great job, ladies!!
