Getting On Board With African Fashion

You have loved these girls for years. They know dirt that your fiance must NEVER know about you, like that entire Summer you didn't shave even when you went to the beach, So reward them with an opportunity to look ravishing and at least hook up at your wedding reception with a hot groomsman.

Lots of Color

Color is how we add that extra African-ness to a wedding. Our sisters from the homeland have centuries of creating exciting and flattering garments for our body types. but the vibrant color has to be the main reason we love the looks. In the new millenium, the trend in Africa is to use traditional African fabrics to sew formal outfits that have more of a westernized modern style.

Remember to wrap that head up!

The vibrant color is not just limited to your dress but to your headdress as well. Colorful gele is a simple way to add an African touch to ordinary bridesmaid dresses.
