5 Ankara RTW Brands: Where to buy Ankara Clothing in Nigeria


So where can one buy ready-to-wear ankara clothing in Nigeria? 


One way, I avoid Nigerian-tailor-horror stories is to opt for ready-to-wear brands when purchasing my ankara pieces. Sure they might be a tad bit more expensive but why not pay more to get something that you'd actually wear. Today, I  listed five ankara ready-to-wear brands based here in Nigeria. All these brands are based in Lagos and ship worldwide! P.S today's post is another ankara collab with my favourite Abuja blogger, Opeyemi's Dairy. We met up to style ankara pieces from two different brands. Keep reading.

Fbibbs was my first try at an ankara RTW brand and I was sold forever! I love her pieces for how unique yet simple thy are. I previously styled dresses from this brand here and here. Her finishing is always so neat too, one of the best I've seen actually.

Bubu Blaq has a way of incorporating ankara fabrics into modern designs which is amazing. In my opinion, it's what makes them stand out. See how I styled this brand here and here


Mayrush sells basic ankara pieces at affordable prices, in this list, this brand is actually the most affordable. And in my previous collaboration with Opeyemi, we both styled dresses from this. Check it out here.

This is a brand that stocks women's wear across different styles. They recently branched out to include ankara and I like what I've seen so far. In this post, Opeyemi's wrap top is from this brand. As for prices, you get a variation of affordable-to slightly affordable, think N8k-20k.

5. SGCT
Last but certainly not the least, is SGCT because this list will not be complete without them. One thing I love about this brand is how often they drop new designs. In this post, my wrap dress is from the brand in collaboration with Opeyemi. I've previously styled pieces from this brand here, here and here

What other ankara brands would you add to this list?  Did you see your favourite ankara brands? I'd love to know. 

Till next time guys!

  1. Beautiful post. I enjoyed doing this. Ankara brands are plenty o. I have worked with several that I can’t start listing them now. Ankara RTW brands have come a long way. They are doing well considering the limiting factors in our country. It can be better sha.

    1. Thank you Opeyemi. Lol as the ankara queen, I expect this response. I would really love to know your take actually. I believe in spite of having worked with many, you would have favorites or brands you'd recommend over others. I think all Made in Nigeria brands across are doing well but then there is always room for improvement.
