The most popular of all fabrics in Africa would definitely have to make a cameo in the list of inspiration. A vast array of fashion campaigns worldwide have been influenced by this colourful fabric. This comes as no surprise as Ankara fabric is one of the most stylish and versatile fabrics on the continent of Africa. Celebrities such as Beyoncé, Jidenna and Kim Kardashian have been spotted wearing Ankara fabric in the past.  Rihanna is also a fan of this trend and even wore an Ankara ensemble on her 2015 Harper’s Bazaar China cover.
