Nigerian designers have taken Ankara Fabrics to new heights with proper designs remarkable enough to garner the attention of fans world wide. Celebs have taken these fabrics and created a trend thanks to designers like Boxing Kitten. Turning Ankara vintage is a brilliant display of art and imagination. While many of us think it original and daring to don Ankara designs, there are some native Nigerians who dislike the idea of American’s wearing or producing fashion inspired and created by African’s. They won’t let us africans have anything. They use to make fun of our clothing and say it looks weird now they wanna steal our fashion after stealing our riches and labeling us terrorist and scammers.

They can wear our clothes but they can’t even embrace the African heritage inside of them (African Americans) they want 2 make fun of our names and our cultural differences yet they want to now rock our clothes. Ankara designs are unique and hard work goes into designing and sewing a dress (from the tailors presepective) now they are going to begin mass producing this sh** in a warehouse resulting in it losing its value, uniqueness, and its connection to Africa!!! instead of saying oh this is an African fabric.
