Hey loves! I took a trip to my native land Nigeria in January and of course I had to stock up on my traditional wear. Since dramatic sleeves are huge right now, I decided to design an asymmetric, dramatic sleeve dress (which was originally a maxi, but I took a pair of scissors to it lol).
This printed fabric is called Ankara and it is generally worn by most African countries especially West African countries. It comes in all kinds of colors and prints that you can possibly imagine and I mac currently wearing one by a company call Da-Viva and I love their designs because they have such bold colors and prints.
The head wrap is not only a fashion statement but also a reminder to wear your crown and wear it proudly. I have found that in life, the crowns placed on you by people can be taken away but the crown placed by God is forever and can never be taken away. So wear your crown proudly, knowing that no matter what you are a queen!
