Luxe Avenue Collection

Stylenspire’s AW15/16 ‘Luxe Avenue’ collection comes with serious glam – it was not designed with your average Ankara. This women’s handmade clothing brand based out of Indianapolis is known for their use of traditional African Ankara prints, and the embellished gold foil of the fabric from this collection ups the ante.

Although some of the design pieces from this collection are staples like the brand’s ADARA Skirts, designer, Yemi Sanni states that “the bold metallic of the fabric takes it to a luxe level”. Any of the pieces you choose from this collection will set the tone for nailing an attention-commanding outfit. From the skirts to the culottes and the palazzo pants, the key to styling any of these pieces you choose to introduce into your autumn/winter wardrobe will be layering.

"As seen in this capsule collection, a lesson of note is that you can celebrate the power of luxurious metallic Ankara prints with chic pairings of your favorite cold weather fashion pieces. The result will be fabulous in true Stylenspiration fashion." Y.S.
