Chitenge Trends in the modern world…

The revolution of Chitenge  is way amazing, more than three decades ago when they could be worn only at the funerals, in the house or only worn by our Grandmothers and then came our mothers.

In this day and age of  technology we are now in , Chitenges not only look very modern, but  can be designed to fit our choice of style, not just to wrap around our body,  but  also to show our best figures, and can be worn every other  season as designers have  great stunning ideas for every occasion.

Now, big Fashion houses like Mangish-Love, Africouture, Esnoko, Tru-designs and many others have now upgraded the chitenge fabric styles from the past generations.

Now we have blazers, shoes, wallets, fashionable dresses and skirts look that stunning, who knew? Whoever thought the Chitenge fabric is still confined within the borders of Africa is wrong. Celebrities like Beyonce, Alicia Keys and Rihanna are rocking the same outfits just like you and me. So let’s be proud of our own fabric.  Proudly you can go out there and make a great choice; floral prints are chic, stripes are straight on point. You can still mix and match colours and still look sophisticated.

Fashion in African Prints is endless….and it  speaks in its own language!
