Velvet X Veba

Lately, I have been thinking of how to incorporate prints to a bridal train and this black velvet dress with a touch of Veba prints popped into my head.a touch of ankara

When I was going to make this dress, I was very particular about my choice of prints so that it could be appropriate for the occassion which was the Africa Magic Viewers’ Choice Awards (AMVCA).veba

Usually, AMVCA is a black tie event but a few people incorporate prints to their looks. For me, I have always been a big fan of prints probably because I love to have my dresses custom made. When I found Veba, it became all too easy to incorrporate prints as much as I would love to and with a plethora of designs within my reach, my creativity is enrriched. black velvet

In order to play safe, I opted for smaller prints but I also needed that dose of red to brighten things up a bit since the velvet was in the color black. This is not to say that you cannot recreate this look with other colors. I have had a green dress made with a touch of Veba prints for AMVCA 2016 and it came out so well. This means that, irrespecctive of the color that you choose to work with, all you need to do is findd the right shade of prints and the most appropriate patterns to go with them.

If you were on my bridal train, will you be happy to rock this look and in what shade? I will love to know your thoughts. definition braids
