FEBRUARY 22 — FIU Kovens Conference Center

Founded by Evelyn Onyejuruwa (on-yeh-joo-roo-wa), a Nigerian native raised in South Florida, Ankara Miami aims to “showcase the beauty and diversity of African Culture through entertainment and an electrifying runway show“.

The event features emerging & established designers from the African Diaspora and their use of Ankara, an African print that has gained popularity in the global fashion scene. “The material is primarily associated with Africa mainly because of the tribal-like patterns and motifs“.

Designers are traveling from FL, NY, LA, TX, and Ghana to exhibit the latest in African inspired apparel & accessories.

Advance tickets start at $35.
