Our Top 6 Favourite Fall Ankara Fabrics

We launched our pilot collection in the summer and to be fair, it was kinda easy. Ankara fabrics are usually bright and bold. So they work very well for summer trends. We worked with yellows, reds, greens and blues.

Our collection included EasyLife, a playsuit made for those summer days that you spend running errands, lunch with a friend or going to the beach. We tried a deep v jumpsuit called HighLife and two maxi dresses that have lived up to their names of The Goddess and The Princess. Not a shabby pilot, overall.

The real challenge has been choosing Ankara fabrics that can take on autumn and even winter. That’s not going to be easy. Yet, we’ve come across some stunning fabrics that we didn’t expect to find. The following Ankara fabrics are absolutely divine for fall:

Ankara Fabrics – Leaves

We get a relaxed vibe when we look at these fabrics. The leaves fall gracefully and the colours are simply radiant! We feel like fall but without the sadness of losing the colour that we enjoyed all summer long.

Ankara Fabrics – Feathers

When we see these feathers, we think of elegance, festival and celebrations. Just what fall is made of. It’s the regal vibe that works with our maxi dress design and our upcoming wrap top for a simpler, sophisticated look. Fabrics like these make it easy to bring summer wear into autumn without changing your wardrobe.

Ankara Fabrics – Flowers

Flowers are eternal. Whatever the season, you’ll find flowers that will grow and bloom. We’re particularly loving yellow and red flowers. We can’t let go of summer! Keep the vibrancy with a splash of colourful flowers. Perhaps wear it with something dark to tone it down. But whatever you do, make sure you shine!
