The news is stale that African fashion has caught the attention of the world. Nigeria, and by extension Africa, must be proud and celebrate names such as Ituen Bassey for the simple reason that foreign fashion designers and celebrities are now paying attention to the Ankara material, a once-upon-a-time colourful fabric associated with poor Africans.

Last year, American pop star, Rihanna, wore an Ankara print dress by emerging Haitian-Italian fashion designer and former model, Stella Jean, for an engagement at the United States White House. Now the catch here is that both Stella Jean (although emerging) and Rihanna are big names in the international fashion and music industry respectively.
