THE HISTORY BEHIND MY AFWN ANKARA NUMBER

Welcome back everyone, don’t run away just yet due to the word ‘history’ it’s not a long story but it’s quite the tale.
The Ankara top I wore for the African Fashion Week Nigeria was originally a gown *tah daaahhhh*.


Yeah, it was a gown made for my cousin’s traditional wedding back in 2012, which I never attended. But ever since then it has come in as a handy number. This dress was quite famous on Facebook back then earning me my well deserved likes and Facebook’s most famous comments like ‘nyz pics’ & kul pix’ I felt like the ‘fweshest’ girl, you know ‘kulest kid’.
But recently I felt I have out grown the style (PS. I could still fit into the dress, except the bust area was a bit tight) so I wanted to give it out.
During the days leading to the AFWN I realized I had nothing to wear and then it hit me ‘why not switch up the style of this dress?’ and so I did and now I have this four way Ankara number which can also be worn as a skirt.


I wore it as a one shoulder poncho, paired it up with a black calf length skinny jeans and flats; and I was good to go.

So that’s the history behind my outfit for the AFWN.

Catch you again next time.

    Very creative, turning a dress into a 4 way number. Looking forward to seeing the other ways you wear it
