Singers Pia Pounds and Nina Roz have worn the African print on a mermaid long dress and Ankara top and long skirt, respectively.
Why Nina Roz and Pia Pounds chose African print for their videos
When it comes to fashion, African print knows no boundaries, and rightfully so. The design has been etched onto jumpers, shoes, formal wear, and accessories such as phone covers, earrings, and pens, among other things. It elevates any material or item it is emblazoned on, music videos inclusive.
Pounds wore the mermaid dress in the new music video for her song "Wanting Me". The video had an African concept ring through the costumes, props and even dance moves. The dress, however, stood out from the other prints giving her the main character spot with grace and boldness. The dress was further elevated with the shoulder African print corsage that is usually worn by a bride.
Designer Ronnie Cham chose a different path for Roz's dress going with an Ankara chest top, a long slit skirt, detached sleeves, a choker, and a wide flat top head wrap. Snippets of the music video for her song "Hallelujah" show Roz standing out against the backdrop of green scenery and a green landscape, among other things.
African print is simultaneously an ordinary inclusion to your wardrobe and a bold unique fashion statement. Adding it to any piece of clothing has the power to make it extraordinary depending on colour, print and patterns. Speaking of which:
The choice of African print is influenced by vibrancy and diversity. The designs are infinite from abstract to tribal patterns and even animal images.
They do not clash. African prints blend in beautifully to enhance their diversity while making you look really fashionable.
They stand out with colour and highlight any given theme colour of the outfit. Their patterns combined with colours are captivating and hold attention as one takes in the details. They are bold and puff up personality in any given setting.
Due to their special occasion aesthetic, they capture attention and are good choices for such occasions that call for attention.
