The first time I saw an Ankara outfit in a Michael Kors store was in LA. I was checking out stores at the trendy outdoor mall in LA when I spotted the outfit. I went in and felt the fabric. Total Ankara, with a price tag well over $300.
Though these designers get inspired by African culture, very rarely do the Africans get the credit for the inspiration. I spotted Ankara designs on the runway at the Elite Model Look After-Party hosted by Etisalat. Here are photos from Linka Ikeji's blog.
