Over the years we have predicted a great number of trends ahead of time and we have been spot on on all occasions. A few trends we spotted ahead of time was the flat hat trend as seen below.
The tiered dress trend…
Amongst many more! So it isn’t a guess when we reiterate that chiffon is soon to find its way into the norms of African fashion.
The use of fabrics like chiffon and organza has always played its part in the world of Africa, especially in Ghana amongst bridal wear, wedding guest outfits, and more. So really, it’s nothing new, but when we say trend, we mean one should expect a barrage of looks with the Chiffon/Organza fabrics. PS: For the rest of the article, we will term it as Chiffon/Organza as they both equally provide the same attributes towards the emerging trend.
Amongst various of the platforms we follow, a few looks we have spotted in town and on occasions, be prepared for the chiffon organza generation. And also with today’s infatuation of nudity and revealing figures, there is a chance that if the two are merged, the chiffon/organza fad could stay much longer.
Two Ghanaian designers also, coincidentally happened to produce Chiffon/Organza cover-ups for clients and those outfits took the stance amongst their most appreciated posts. The eye-captivating looks were published on their Instagram pages and are a must-see. The first is by Melanie Crane and the second is by African By Nana (below).
We tend to easily spot trends not simply if the act of design is new or appealing, but how viral a set of outfits are amongst admirers. This stems from bloggers to social media content creators to style influencers pages and more. And the recent admiration and appreciation for some of the chiffon/organza looks are off the roof. Here are a mix of looks from influencers, editorial and more that are burning the internet.
