Mirror Mirror Premier: Is that Ankara prints I see everywhere?

 
"Mirror Mirror" movie starring Julia Roberts opened yesterday Friday 30th March in the US and it was a visual delight! Paying homage to our African Wax Prints.

It was all done by the late oscar winning Japanese Costume designer- Eiko Ishioka. A standing ovation please, for our Ankara prints.

Only Ankara?

Damask (Arabic: دمسق‎) is a reversible figured fabric of silk, wool, linen, cotton, or synthetic fibers, with a pattern formed by weaving. Damasks are woven with one warp yarn and one weft yarn, usually with the pattern in warp-faced satin weave and the ground in weft-faced or sateen weave. Twill damasks include a twill-woven ground or pattern

The style, theme and use of Ankara/Damask is very similar to the work of Nigeria's very own talent Yinka Shonibare.

Linda, Ankara is not even an African concept...it came from the dutch who printed Indonesian prints on fabric and sold it to us.The Damask and aso- oke is Africa's lane.

Linda, Ankara is not African. It is a type of fabric printing popular in Europe. Its actually the name of a town. African fabric print work can be seen in Adire, Kente etc

Take your job more seriously, Linda. You are the unofficial Information Minister. Google is your friend. Have a great day everyone
