African Feminine Flair with Black Owned Brands

African feminine flair reflects bold and jewel tone colors, and intricate patterns that symbolize the complexity, strength, and regality of feminine roles and energy.  It is represented by traditional African wax prints reflective of diverse and rich cultures, as well as flowing and feminine silhouettes.  These include ruffles, high waisted, A-line and off the shoulder designs, as well as bell sleeves.
