GET KENTE INSPIRED

As most of you may know the Kente Cloth originated in Ghana and is still one of the true gems to still be made and sourced from Ghana. March the 6th marks Ghana Independence day we are sure many Ghanaians will be wearing there Kente cloths with pride.

However you do not have to be Ghanaian to wear the kente cloth, many like it because of its bright bold colours and royal look.

At the Styles Afrik we have used Kente Print in African Wax Cotton for our designs. So weather you want to make your dress in time to celebrate Ghana Independence or you wish to wear this for Prom or a wedding. Here are some inspirational designs.

Matching Duo Contemporary African Print Outfits

Happy Monday Everyone,

With Valentines Day around the corner it’s time to talk: Couples, Duos, Partners etc, so today we thought we would share with you our matching duo collection. One of the reasons we started Styles Afrik Occasion wear was to allow couples to match without having to be too traditional.

Last year my partner and i were invited to a wedding and although we did not want to match exactly we thought it would be nice for him to have maybe a Tie or Bow-tie in the same fabric as my dress. Lord and behold it was like looking for a needle in a haystack, although we were able to get the fabric and get my dress done with no problem, finding a tailor that made Ties, Bow ties was almost impossible.

This gave us the idea to expand and source quality well made Men’s Accessories, so if you want something subtle or your ready to make a statement with an African Print blazer, it’s time to start matching with your partner.

These Duos Outfits are perfect for Prom, Weddings, Galas or a simple night out…..

Winter Blues OUT and Winter Brights IN

So many of us around the globe are currently facing snow storms, blizzards or dreadful rain, however there is also a large proportion of us who are currently sunbathing in scorching temperatures. Unfortunately i am one of the many people living in a city that only experiences 2-3 months ( if we are lucky ) of sunshine a year and the majority of the time filled with either snow or rain….Have you guessed where yet?

That’s right the lovely city called ( LONDON ). So for those of you sunbathing right now or enjoying a nice stroll in the glorious weather [please spare 1 min to think about us while your sipping on a lovely cocktail with the breeze blowing through your hair.

So as i am sitting in the office drinking a cup of HOT Chocolate with the wind blowing outside and snow falling i had a thought!

“Should the weather dictate what we wear or should we dictate what we wear?”  So many of us wait until we see a little sunshine before we start folding away the Greys and Blacks in our closets. ( Why is that? ) Surely if you feel liking wearing Pink or Yellow in the winter then you should go ahead and do so and not be looked upon like a complete lunatic.

I never understood why retail outlets immediately change all of the colours in-store as soon as Autumn/Winter appears forcing you to wear Blacks and Greys and Dark colours.

Winter should not be about blending into the dark miserable greys of the clouds. So today i say lets stand up to the WINTER BLUES and and bring in the WINTER BRIGHTS.

Many of you who may know me know that i have always loved and appreciated colour and building Styles-Afrik has given me the platform to embellish on that.

I don’t agree that you should wear that little black dress to the party or the club , why blend in with 100’s of other women  surely those events are about standing out and bringing out your inner brightness.

So ladies and gents here is my suggestion every time you think about purchasing the same Black or Grey outfit think about this blog.

Here are some some suggestions to help keep you warm but also help to release your inner brightness. img_20170104_084500_504

WE ARE BACK!

STYLES-AFRIK IS BACK BIGGER AND BETTER

During our 2 year break we have had alot of time to research the market and find a product that is:

  1. Value for money
  2. Superior quality
  3. Attention to detail
  4. Bang on trend and style

In order to capture all of these components we decided to launch our own brand of clothing line. During our time operating Styles-Afrik we received alot of feedback on how to improve the service, so we decided to listen to our customers.

The new site is alot more interactive, clean and very easy to navigate, we also made improvements to the turnaround and stock availability issue. The New Styles-Afrik Clothing line is entirely custom made, we allow the customer to choose the design they want from our collection and the fabric they wish to have it made in. We then ask for your measurements and we make the garment for you and deliver to your door ( Worldwide).

WHY CUSTOM MADE? 

Many of you provided us feedback that you wished garments could be tailored made to your specific measurements, so we listened.

WEBSITE 

We hope to go live End of January 2017 in the interim we are accepting orders manually. We have created a small catalogue with our designs and fabrics available. Simply choose your design and fabric and complete your details in our order form we will then provide you with a PayPal Invoice for payment.

NEW COLLECTION

The new Collection is mainly targeted towards Bridal Party and Occasion Wear. Our designs are intricate and detailed with classic cuts, shapes and silhouettes.
