This absolutely stunning ‘Nigerian Renaissance’ editorial is the brainchild of All Things Ankara and Jidenna to promote the Nigerian Independence Ball in Maryland. The beautiful model and philanthropist featured in the editorial is Jessica Chibueze.
Ankaras, also known as Dutch wax print, are colorful, are patterned fabrics popular across West Africa, and the diaspora. Nikki Billie Jean founded, All Things Ankara as a way to build a “movement of ankara print inspired creatives and enthusiasts who create visual art and collaborate on fashion productions such as photo and video editorials, campaigns and events.”
I love the use of color and prints in this editorial to represent heritage and legacy. As a person who frequents balls and galas, I’m always looking for a way to interject character in my attire. I think I found the answer!
In case you are interested in attending the ball, like me, here is the link for more information: http://www.allthingsankara.com/ball/
