Hot photos from the Ankara SWIM - African Runway Show in Miami

Each July, the city of Miami hosts Ankara SWIM, an event that hosts international and local swimwear brands from all over the world to showcase never before seen collections to an audience of fashion enthusiasts including retail buyers, media, and consumers. 

African prints, braided styles, and textured hair ruled the runway once again during the 2nd annual Ankara SWIM – Miami Swim Week’s first & only African production.  

Evelyn Onyejuruwa, Founder/CEO of Ankara Miami, Inc and Executive Producer of Ankara SWIM said
We are extremely proud to have provided a platform for such beautiful & culturally-inspired designs, models, and natural hair art by Natural Trendsetters Salon. We look forward to continuing to raise the bar for authentic and progressive African events in South Florida. This is just a sneak peek of what’s to come next February during Ankara Miami 2018 – Florida’s Premier African Fashion Week.
The 8 featured designers, who represented Nigeria, Sierra Leone, Zimbabwe, Jamaica, Panama, Trinidad & Tobago, Haiti, and the USA, showcased their latest collections of swimwear, resort-wear, and accessories. They hit the runway last Saturday night alongside host Marcellus “Chello” Davis and hostess/Ugandan model, Adoch

The latest in Afrobeat and other Afro-Caribbean hits filled the room courtesy of Guest DJ, DJ Baboo until the night closed with an exciting performance by R&B/soul artist and South Florida’s own, April RaQuel.
