The name Dashiki is derived from the Hausa word ʼyar̃ ciki, which means shirt. In America the dashiki that we all have come to love and appreciate was made popular by Walter Eugene aka Ofuntola Oseijeman Adelabu Adefunmi who was born in Detroit, Michigan, USA in 1928.
Today African designers from the West of the continent to the East have taken the dashiki print to new levels of glam. The dashiki is no longer a V neck loose fitting pull over top. The dashiki as you can see here is for all styles, gowns and two pieces included.
Here are our favorite dashiki looks from Zuvaa.
