5 ANKARA DRESSES THAT PROVE THAT COLOUR IS AN INTEGRAL ELEMENT IN FASHION DESIGN
Have you ever seen a dress of intricate design and style but looks drab, not so appealing or just unappealing? Have you also seen an outfit with simple design/style yet very inviting? Design entails more than intricate lines and proportions.
In fashion (and other fields of design), so many elements come together to make a good design, colour being one of them. Colour plays a very important role in fashion, from design/production to marketing.
A good fashion designer knows that incorporating/matching the right colour of fabric and embellishment breathes life into a design and produces not only a beautiful, unique piece but also a marketable one.
The following dresses designed and made with the popular, vibrant, and now-more-than-ever trending African print fabric, the Ankara, show just how important hues and shades are in design.
