Boxing Kitten Resort 2010 Collection + I WON!!

I just came across the Resort Collection by Boxing Kitten on True Queen (a fab blog i just discovered).The Resort collection by Maya lake, owner of Boxing Kitten exudes femininity, fun and funk.I was blown away by the burst of colors and the fact that the Ankara ( a fabric that is widely used in Africa and is very much part of our culture) was used, made me fall deeply for this collection. Check out some of the pieces below.



It's Naima winner of ANTM 4
















This is the dress Solange wore sometime last week...see post here

I think my only problem with boxing kitten is the disregard for where the Ankara fabric originated from, yes the Dutch make it but the designs are purely African, the dutch will tell u that they learnt it from the west African women textile makers so not only is the Ankara fabric worn by Africans, it is an African fabric. I hate when people don't do proper research and put up rubbish on their website as fact but do I blame her? NO! we as Africans have the "I don't care attitude" thereby giving people the power to distort our history. I am sorry I went political. She has a fab collection :)

Ms Zee, i think there was a debate about this on Bella Naija after the interview which Maya claimed that the fabric originated from Holland.
I just checked up some history on Ankara fabric and its says it originated from Indonesia and another says in Europe.
There are many versions of the origin.Either way, it is apparent that somewhere along the line, they got inspired by African artefacts (tooth comb designs etc are found on some of these fabrics).

Whichever way Boxing Kitten has fabulous designs

I am actually with Ms Zee on this one even though the collection s faboulous. I think african should start buying from african designers. Most of the time the designs are a bit pricey because they are not mass produces but that is not an excuse. We should start by blaming the African celebrities and first ladies who are not promoting their own
