Collections made with Ankara used to be flimsy and not given a lot of thought, made with mediocre styles and unreasonable prices, it became difficult to see these types of collections as anything a good roadside tailor couldn't do.

Lisa Folawiyo, the designer, released an editorial featuring pieces from her Autumn / Winter 2017 Ankara Collection. Modeled by the beautiful actress, Somkele Iyamah, these pieces are exceptional. 

What makes them so cool isn't just Lisa's genius approach to designing and mixing prints, but also the impeccably hip way the pieces were styled. Here, the brand's team played with the coolest trends, from putting a tee under a slip dress, to wearing a dress over mom jeans. 

As the brand put it, 

"Classic glamour with a mix of refreshingly modern looks."
