Traditionally Becoming Modern

traditional african dresses

African print clothing and african dresses are extremely versatile as they can easily be dressed up or down. 

Due to the variety of colours and prints, it makes African fashion more diverse and suitable for several occasions. 

Traditional African clothing is no longer traditional. It has evolved into modern times and is part of modern fashion today. I call it modern traditional fashion.  

African prints can vary in many ways. From simple, subtle colours with small print. To the bold, brighter, larger prints. Sometimes typical african prints are very literal.  

Some of the more popular African prints are known as Ndebele print, Xhosa print, Swati print, Angolan print and Dashiki Print.
