Q&A with Steph: What happens when Ankara stops reigning

I get this question ALLLLL the time.

If Ankara stops reigning, you move with the trend.

Check this out, I noticed a new trend at the GTB Lagos Fashion and Design Week last week, and guess what is now reigning?


Let me show you some of the designs I saw.

You know what’s so great about this? The same accessories you can make with Ankara, you can also make with Adire.

The skill is the same, all you need to do is to change the fabric you use.

I have been waiting for the day Adire will also start reigning, so that I can make some beautiful accessories with the fabric.

Here are some of my favourite designs from the show:
