Hey Divas,

The A-line gown is named after the shape the dress visually creates, it has no visible embellishments for ease such as pleats or slits, but it is a type of clothing that is fitted or not too fitted at the upper bodice bringing out a triangular shape or flaring out at the hem of the garment.

The term ”A-line” was be dated as far back as 1955 by Christian Dior for his collection of spring 1955. Though it is quite different from what we have now, it must have inspired designers to come with the A-line designs. A-line cloths became popular in the 1960s and 70s and it disappeared before reappearing in the 2000s.

A-line gowns can be classified as a simple and classic styles with its form fitting around the bodice thereafter flowing out to the hem. It comes in different lengths ranging from above the knee to full length. A-line gowns can be made from  different fabrics and Ankara is one of them.  Ankara A-line gown is also lovely to behold because of its array of colourful patterns.
