In recent years, we have seen the influx of African print clothing in mainstream fashion. Designers like Steve Madden, Forever21, Zara and H&M classify this category of clothing as ethnic fashion. As a fashionista with deep African roots from Nigeria, West Africa, adorning these uniquely authentic pieces is almost like a second nature.

 

Most of my childhood Sunday service clothes were made out of Ankara fabric. Other equally breathtaking African print fabrics include Kente, Kitenge, Aso Oke, Dashiki, and Gele. The patterns and specially selected colors of these fabric hold significant meanings to the area where they originate from. 

 

I have an immerse love and admiration for African print pieces. After moving thousands of miles away from Nigeria, my nostalgia for traditional African pieces became more intense. Luckily, I have a sister who designs, hand-makes, and occasionally mails African clothing to me like this Aso Oke fringe skirt.

 

I have rounded up over 50 best African print dresses and where to get them. Because these pieces are handmade, no two pieces are exactly the same. In fact, many of the designers only have a limited supply of a style in a particular fabric. Sometimes, they offer the same style in various fabric choices.

 

I will update this list often to replace sold out styles with newer available traditional dresses. Etsy is my go to store for beautifully crafted African print outfits. These one-of-a-kind pieces are made to order so they tend to cost more and last-longer than the typical mass-produced outfits.

 

Without further ado and in no particular order, here are my top 50+ best African print dresses (as well as where to get them).

*Please note: This post has been updated to remove sold out products. If you can’t find an item then it means that the product sold out.

      Hi Marian, these are breathtaking pieces by amazing designers 🙂 I’m not sure where you can get the pattern as these are not publicly available from the designers. You’d have to create your own pattern or reach out to each designer.

      Hi Prudence, you can get some of the fabric on Etsy. There’s no guarantee that you’ll find exactly what you want but Etsy would be your best bet.

      Hello Maxine, thank you for stopping by. That dress might already be sold out it’s hard to tell which dress you’re referring to without providing the dress #. To shop any of these styles, simply click on the image to be directed to the designer’s store. Thank you.

      Hello Virginia, thanks for your lovely comment. These dresses were made by several Etsy designers. You might be able to get some nice patterns from Vlisco but a lot of them locally source their fabric in their home country. Hope this helps!
