Fashion in Nigeria is gaining more traction than ever. The everyday outing is no longer taken as before.
Now both women & men go the extra mile to look fashionable. Even children are being encouraged to show their fashion prowess at an early age.
As the need to be fashionable increases, so have the designers and stylists increased their creative use of local fabrics.
The Ankara fabric has been the one receiving more attention. Although more designers are beginning to shift to the Yoruba Aso Oke fabric. The African Fashion Week Nigeria (AFWN) was no exception, as a higher percent of designers that showcased at the event used the Ankara fabrics and other African prints in their pieces.
