All Things Ankara (Washington, D.C)

If you like Ankara, that vibrant, colourful iconic African material, you must check out the All Things Ankara Fashion Week and clothing brand, too.

All Things Ankara Fashion Week is a series of fashion events that aims to showcase, highlight and celebrate Ankara Print Fashion. It is used as an economic platform to highlight and introduce emerging and established Ankara Print inspired fashion designers and small businesses to the general public and untapped demographics.

It is the first ever Ankara Print Fashion Week to exist and the brainchild of Founder and Editor-In-Chief
Nikki Billie Jean (Nicolette Orji) . The first show took place last year and was so successful this year’s show was hotly awaited. Nikki plans n taking the All Things Ankara FashionWeek to other cities in the U.S. and eventually around the world, too.

This year’s  All Things Ankara Fashion Week, D.C took place in Washington, D.C at the Fillmore Silver Spring in Silver Spring Maryland 
 on Saturday, 25 July. The show consists of three events – Ankara Marketplace, Ankara Fashion Show & LOFA Magazine Official Launch.

Nikki also makes Ankara clothes and you can find her store here. She founded her fashion business in 2013 and since then has sold African vintage inspired accessories and apparel for men, women and children using bright, bold Ankara prints.

The Billie Jean bowtie bags are a bold, gorgeous statement piece. Slip your hand through the bow to hold the bag. Certainly eyecatching and very stylish too. Most affordable at $50.
