Ghana Independence Ball 2016: Mixed Kente Print Gown

On Saturday, I went to the Exquisite Ghana Independence Ball 2016 at Howard Theatre in Washington, D.C.

The event celebrated Ghana’s 59th independence.

For the occasion, in true Ghanian style, I wore a mixed kente print gown with a dramatic tail.

I am in love with patterns in this dress. So colorful and vibrant.

I did my hair and make-up. Kinky twist mow-hawk updo, a slight beat and a red lip.
