Wedding dress

Bride rocks beautiful Ankara Atire for her wedding, rather than the western white-colored gown.

We need more Chioma(s) - a Nigerian woman, who rather than the usual white gown, rocked the Ankara Atire for her wedding. 

I mean Africa needs more Afrocentric minds on the continent, African clothing is one of the best in the world with different colors to pick from to suit your desired needs.

African wax prints, also known as Ankara and Dutch wax prints, are omnipresent and common materials for clothing in Africa, especially West Africa. They are industrially produced colorful cotton cloths with batik-inspired printing.

Can I wear Ankara to a wedding?

People often ask this question but the good news is definitely yes you can.

You can wear either purely Ankara wedding dress or fuse it with the western white-colored gown. Both are very eye-catching, but the fusion of both will give a very modern look as it's unique and voguish. Bright red and plum lip paints will make you look fresher and stunning.

What makes the Ankara so special is that it is usually a colorful cloth and is primarily associated with Africa because of its tribal-like patterns and motifs. It is also a very versatile fabric and many items can be made from it such as hats, earrings, blazers, and shoes to name a few.
