Hi all, been a while. I have been very busy lately moving from one location to another………………………..
I have been living in the northern part of Nigeria, Kano precisely for about 7 years and enjoyed my stay until the Boko haram insurgence surfaced. Life has since been unbearable and we all lived in fear.
So I started talking to God about moving out of the north and few weeks ago I was transferred to the south! Praise God!
Enough about my relocation gist…., now to today’s post;
Ankara fabrics are vibrant patterns of very rich colorful designs. It is mostly made of 100% cotton or cotton poly material. Originally the wax resist dyed fabrics were exported to the Gold Coast and spread over West Africa into Central Africa and were largely produced in Nigeria. They became extremely popular over time and were initially worn as every day casual outfits customized to suit the designs of the person wearing it.
As I thought of writing this post, the wedding ceremony of my friend Sunday and his heartthrob shade came to my mind.
Sunday and shade picked a purple with gold and white design Ankara material
I made a dress with a golden organza material as my bolero/jacket

What’s your take on the aso- ebi?
The Ankara material is very versatile that’s why lots of young people like to use it as aso-ebi.
Apart from being affordable, you can mix and match with other materials depending on your creativity.
