Ankara x Denim Frill Pants

Hi people! I want to start off by apologising for the long silence. It wasn’t intentional in any way. The last few months have been crazy. But I’m back now 🙂 and still enjoying home. I hope you’re all having a good year so far? I’m really looking forward to what God has in store for me this year and I’m very excited for this incredible journey.

Life feels freer but no less difficult in this part of town.

The sun was as hot as the market woman’s tomatoes were red. The vehicles (colloquially named keke napep) are normally bright yellow in colour and have 3 wheels. The lack of doors allowed for maximum ventilation with every ride, bearing in mind you were careful enough not to fall out in transit. I had entered one for the first time in Lagos a few years back and enjoyed the cool breeze coming from both ends, as it was ridiculously hot.


In Woji, there are a million little markets and stalls laden with attractive fresh fruits and vegetables as well as all sorts of spices for an assortment of local delicacies, which made me crave the many local dishes I hadn’t had in a while. Different arrays of fabrics and colours that would keep a designers mind inspired for days.

Nigeria’s ever evolving culture allows for so much more creative diversity. While experimenting with waxes and Ankara, opportunities become endless when we mix in aspects of western fashion style.


Being home I can become my own designer and take on tailors to bring my imagination to life and this is one of my more recent creations. Another advantage of Nigerian culture.

I totally love these denim frill pants I created with Ankara and decided to pair it up with a cool white choker top, a multicoloured clutch and some white heels. I also wore some blue flowery earrings, which was inspired by the flower pattern and colour of the Ankara material and some silver bracelets.


Feel free to drop a comment on your thoughts about this look. Have a great week guys x
