A day doesn’t pass in Africa, without seeing both men and women adorned in colorful, elaborately-printed scarves, wraps, blouses, skirts, dresses and suits all made from the African print fabric. Which is ironic considering that, a few years back it was only our moms and grand-moms that had the fabric in their wardrobes. Today African prints can be sewn and worn in diverse ways, and can be worn for any and every type of event depending on the styling.
