I still remember this collection like yesterday. It was back when western designers started making full collection with  the kitenge, Ankara, African print whatever. Before Burberry and Stella jean there was Juanjo Olivia. This collection never gets old .

OMG! where should I start , so yesterday when I found  this amazing  shot of  Chanel Iman in the Feb issue of  the Vogue Spain and many of you liked it including my girl Rosemany from Fashion Junkii. Being a fashion Junkii she was able to find out the designer of the dress Chanel was wearing . Please check out the rest  of the collection of Juanjo Oliva Spring 2010 collection below

There you have it girls  I think the collection is just  amazing. My guess is this is just a one time thing but I cannot wait to see more from this designer. I know he is not an African designer but I am happy to finally see more Ankara in the runway. So what say you ?
