BLOCKING…COLOUR BLOCKING.

Colour blocking was really big in 2012.Will it still remain in 2013?

Basically,colour blocking is putting 2 or more solid colours together to make an outfit.The colours however NEED to go together and have no print on the item of clothing.you know,like red and yellow,red black and white,purple and pink, red and blue and sooo many other colour combinations.Although some clothes already come colour-blocked.Just make sure they don’t clash! It’s a lot of fun if you love colour like me.COLOUR IS YOUR FRIEND!

If you want to know whether you’re doing it right,here’s a basic colour wheel to help.It’s basic because not all colours are represented here.Colours opposite each other go together.But also some colours that are next to each other are compatible.Like lime green and yellow,blue and green etc…

A IS FOR ANKARA..MY POINT OF VIEW.

A sight to behold.Yesterday I was at 1st Impression Designs at The Mall,Westlands getting my ankara on.I just wanted to leave the place with all these fabrics.. too bad I couldn’t 😦

Image

It’s called Ankara and Kente in west Africa,kitenge in East Africa.These are beautiful  native fabrics that have been used since like forever,to make clothing .They’re also used to make accessories and shoes.Ankara just recently gained popularity especially among us young people. Let’s face it..as recently as 2 years ago most of us young folks DID NOT even want to imagine ourselves wearing it.Well..i didn’t.These days,these fabrics are tailored stylishly. In the past they were associated with the older generation.These days I will rock ankara/kente/kitenge fabric gladly.It’s here to stay now and forever.In case you ever buy the fabric,here are some few ideas:
