Ankara Blvd

Ankara Blvd

Black people have shown their creativity through fashion for centuries. You can go back as far as ancient civilisations of Africa that existed from centuries BC all through to modern day African and Caribbean countries to see the amazing hairstyles, clothing and jewellery we come up with.

Ankara is a name used for African print or African wax print fabrics around the world. West Africans popularly wear Ankara fabrics and have used them to make blazers, shirts, trousers, blouses, skirts and the traditional “up and down style”.

Now there are Ankara shoes, and I am so in love with this trend. I know this trend has been around for a few years but until I stumbled on the Ankara Blvd. page on Instagram, I had never seen Ankara trainers(sneakers) that looked so well made. I have never been a girl who loved trainers but I definitely will wear these trainers.

The shoes are not just made from Ankara fabrics they are also made from kente fabrics, suede, rubber, and microfiber and are lined with suede. The shoes are unbelievably lightweight, elastic and anti-wrinkle. Ankara Blvd also makes flip-flops, high-tops, and ballet flats for ladies that come with different colours. Some colours represent the pan-African colours (red, black and green)representing flags of African and Caribbean countries.
There are also trainers for men and children on their website. Ankara Blvd also makes crop tops, t-shirts, skirts, dresses, dashiki and trousers for women. They make hoodies, dashiki and t-shirts for men and onsies for kids. I love the fact that all the items on the website are given traditional African names.

My favorite item on the Ankara Blvd website is definitely the travel bags that come in different colors representing the flags of different countries in Africa and the Caribbean. I personally need to get Nigerian flag travel bag and the red, black and green travel bag. They also sell clutches, shoulder bags and swimwear.

  11. Hey there this is kind of of off topic but I was wanting to know if blogs use WYSIWYG editors or if you have to manually code with HTML. I’m starting a blog soon but have no coding experience so I wanted to get guidance from someone with experience. Any help would be enormously appreciated!
