Dior cruise 2020 collection: Africans come for French Luxury Designer over Ankara Wax prints

Africans have come hard against global fashion brand Dior whom they’ve accused of stealing their style and trying to pass it off as original.

Dior, via it’s Twitter page unveiled it’s Dior Cruise 2020 collection featuring popular African wax prints called Ankara.

This did not go down well with many Africans who accused the French Luxury designer of stealing their style without giving credit.

People said things like: ”There is no originality here!! 🤣🤣🤣🤣 stolen from Africa!!” and ”Y’all never get enough from stealing from Africa”.

While some of the call outs were out rightly hilarious, we found some sense in what some people said. Checkout some of the  reactions from Africans below…

 

Ankara is a colourful wax print worn mostly in West Africa for decades.
