Another Ankara top by Yours Truly

After my recent post on IG featuring the yellow top on my previous blog post, I have been asked to show more of my creations. This is another top I made recently. I just returned from carnival in Barbados 2 days ago and plan to invest more time creating some more pieces. Please let me know if you would be interested in seeing any particular style and I will try to recreate. Leave me a comment with the style whether it is on Pinterest or another website or even IG. Thanks so much for stopping by! See you on my next post!!! XOXOXO

PS…the first photos were taken in Brooklyn while the others were while I was on vaca in Barbados.

Who says Ankara fabrics can’t be sexy?!?! Featured top made by yours truly.

Who else loves Ankara prints??? Let’s not all answer at once…lol. I have been holding on to a few pieces of Ankara fabric for a few years now and only used them as head wraps but recently I decided to change that. Your girl has been sitting on her talent for way too long. You see, I studied fashion while living in Barbados. I also grew up in a household where everyone created designs for themselves as well as others so becoming a designer was only natural for me. For a few years prior to moving to the U.S., I was a fashion designer and had tons of clients who hated seeing me leave for the U.S. This was one of the most fulfilling times in my life. As life has it, starting over and building a new clientele here seemed a bit daunting so I opted to work for others and soon became a paralegal (I know this is the polar opposite from where I came from). However, lately I have been feeling the urge to get this going again so despite my busy schedule, I will be setting aside some time to focus on my passion. Hopefully, I can eventually take my dream and creativity to the next level.
