Eye catching colors and bold designs have brought African print to the forefront of the fashion industry. More and more brand are adapting more african inspired pieces into their collection and a handful of africans in diaspora continue to fly this flag high. We now see an emergence of the African print on catwalks and fashion shows and it is obvious that the fashion world has welcomed it with open arms.

The rising popularity of African print amongst women of all colors is representative of their personality and feminine strength. One look at this kimono hanging on a railing in 41 Luxe Abuja and I knew i couldn’t leave without it. While modernization has improved our appreciation of formal English gowns and French suits, today’s fashionista’s are also mindful of their culture and will fearlessly rock an Ankara kimono, two piece or form fitting gown to work like its the order of the day.

I’m particularly in love with this Kimono because of the richness of the contrast. The combination of purple and black lace applique, finished off with intricate stoning on the top half takes your slay to a whole new level. I thought to pair this with a pair of white trousers and a white sheer bodysuit.

Imagine this Kimono paired with a little black or white dress, strappy six inch heels and a cute little purse .. oohhh!!! That – my darlings – is how you steal the show. You can snag this dress in their store at 41 Libreville Crescent, wuse 2, on their website at or send a DM here.

    I love the solid construction of the design and how it just sits so gloriously on your frame. Those glasses are outta of this world paired with the ensemble, you look truly divine.
