Fridays in Nigeria are usually filled with “dress-down” options as well as people delving into Traditional attire. Hereby: “in true accordance with the culture of my people and in conforming to the nuances of the land, I pulled out an Ankara number for today’s Friday post.
It is a Print Pinafore over a contrasting Print Shirt. This outfit is quite dear to my heart for various reasons. It was the first outfit/sample I created in my journey towards creating pieces for the Zinkata Debut collection. I remember taking a trip to Vlisco and very excitedly choosing fabric for the pinafore and the shirt.
I went ahead and reproduced this outfit for retail in contrasting stunning prints of Woodin fabric. It was a hit in the stores! Totally!! and it felt quite right, to wear it today, to celebrate working in Fashion in Africa at such a time as this.
Thank you all for your support and constant patronage and encouragement!!! A massively exciting and blessed weekend is upon us!! Stay happy!
