Africa: African Fashion Revolution

“It's is an African fashion revolution,” declares Ladybrille: “Some few thoughts: First, African designers need to start calling their Ankara dresses “vintage,” [ you laugh] Second, they need to treat Ankara as “high-end.” Don't wait till the West calls it high end before you know it is [you laugh but we mean it!] Third, while we think it is amazing to see all types of people, Whites included, selling African inspired lines to high-end boutiques,we would sure like to also see African designers sell to high end boutiques in the West.
