Hi beauties, I hope you are all doing well.

Did you ever see the story of the young lady Kyemah who ‘broke the internet when her ‘Dashiki’ prom dress photos went viral?

Well it was such an inspiration to see that after Kyemah designed her own prom dress, she got the opportunity to design a dress for singer, songwriter and ‘Power’ actress Naturi Naughton to wear to the 2015 BET awards.

Each African fabric has a name, this one is called ‘Angelina’, but I guess they have been calling it ‘Dashiki’ fabric online as they are making reference to the trendy dashiki’s that everyone has been wearing recently.

From Naturi’s comments on Twitter we can see she was elated with the dress as she posed showing off her curves.

It is so great to see the celebrities we know and love embracing African fabrics, patterns and styles.

It also just goes to show that when you have a passion for something (designing in Kaymahs’s case) and you put yourself out there while staying true to yourself for people to see, the possibilities are endless. Dreams really can come true!

What do you think of the dress, did she slay it or nah?
