So what do you think of this power of two  ? Is it one of your favorite fashion houses? designers? would you like to see more from them . Always let me know if there are any other designers you’d like to see spotlighted on Ciaafrique in the future . I love African fashion !!!!!!! do you?


  1. I do love African fashion, but I'm getting a little tired of seeing so many designers use ankara. I'd like to see them push themselves a little more and give as a new interpretation of 'African fashion'

  2. cant find their website anywhere in the post

  3. hey honey @chictherapy
    They sent me their website but i accidentally erased it . You can check out their fan page on facebook

  4. @mbls you have a good point. The designer have to start pushing more. I get excited for example when i see the collection of david tlale From SA. Now thats fashion and a good one.

  5. When I look at these pictures, I can't help but marvel at the photography..

  6. It is the African prints that sets us apart from the mainstream designers though, it's what makes us unique. I think it should not be completely removed from the collections but be creatively incorporated is ways that are not obvious or done :)


Thank you all for taking the time to comment.
