Go ahead, ask me a question?   Afro inspired Craft, Fashion & Hair

Fashion is cyclical in Africa too. This is called oleku style from Nigeria. The top is a square shaped blouse with wide sleeves. The bottom wrap was worn as a mini in the 60’s and 70’s but became maxis till very recently. Young women now prefer this style as it uses less fabric (economical) and can be worn almost like a western modern look.
