#AFWLondon Inspiration – Real Friends Rock Ankara by Metrogypsie

My love for African brands knows no bounds. The icing on the cake occurs when it’s female owned. When L’aviye reached out to me to style their upcoming studio shoot, I decided to turn things up a notch by  styling their pieces in a blogger-type lifeStyle way. Called on a friend of mine, Summer (apt name for the collection, haha), requested 2 pieces each of 6 styles and made a plan. 

Shot on my street in London, 95% of the add-ons (tops, accessories, shoes etc) are bits from my closet. Here is how I styled;

The Shorts (2 ways) 

with vintage shirts


with tulle blouses 


• The Skirts (3 ways)

with a scarf crop & sheer shirt


| with blazers 


• The Wrap Blouse

with pants & shorts



• The off shoulder top (2 ways)

with midi pinafore skirt | with ankle grazing  pants


The Shirt (3 ways)

with white linen pants | with white shorts


| with slip dresses



• The Dress (2 ways)

• alone with heels

| with jeans 

Hope this inspires your next anakra outing.
