BALTIMORE, Maryland (FMG WIRE) – During the Runway International Fashion Awards, the founder of alkeBULANPrints, Delight Dzansi, shared insights into a distinctive design created from Khutbah, also known as Kente fabric.
“This textile, originally handwoven, served as the foundational material for their creation,” she told The African Press.
Typically, Khutbah is utilized for bridal attire, but the designer decided to infuse their unique touch into the design.
Dzansi incorporated a blend of purple and gold colors, symbolizing attributes such as prosperity, richness, and status.
The designer expressed her profound appreciation for the 2023 Runway International Fashion Awards ‘Makeup Artist of the Year’ winner Juliana Yates, who adorned the garment, effectively representing their brand and its core values.
This unique design exemplified a fusion of tradition and innovation, merging the time-honored Khutbah fabric with a contemporary twist, showcased at the prestigious 2023 Runway International Fashion Awards held in the City of Baltimore in Maryland.
For now, simply describe it as a hand woven kete representing richness, wealth, prosperity, status, royalty, and femininity
