Mixing African prints with western pieces…AfroPop is most likely the only way you’ll find me wearing African prints.
I had this itty-bitty skirt custom-made while I was in Uganda. If you ever find yourself exploring the streets of Kampala or any African city for that matter, you have to visit the African-Crafts market. Skip the boring brass earrings and indulge in the vast collection of African print fabrics and beaded bracelets. Don’t be afraid to bargain for a price reduction.
Take your fabric to a local tailor along with a screenshot from your favorite fashion blogger…ahem…FabsCulture, and show them what you would like tailored for you. Don’t make it challenging unless you’re sure of your tailor’s skills.
And if you’re not in the motherland, consider Zuvaa your new found friend. They have international shipping and all. Some of the prices however could come off as offensive…lol.
Wear this to…
A night on the town, drinks with the ladies, date night or pretty much anywhere you would like to get noticed, cos this number will capture all eyes.
