Ankara Miami, Inc.
Ankara Miami, Inc. is a South Florida based event planning company committed to "Redefining African Cultural Trends". Since its creation in August 2011 by Founder/CEO, Evelyn Onyejuruwa (Miss Nigeria Florida 2011-2012), the company has continued its mission to promote progressive people and trends within the African Diaspora. Ankara Miami’s launch event, Ankara Miami 2012: 1st Annual Ankara Fashion & Cultural Show, showcased emerging and established designers from the African Diaspora and their use of ankara (a well known West African fabric) and African prints in mainstream Western fashion. The ground-breaking, signature event was featured by The Eye, Culture Shock Nigerians, Sugarcane Magazine, The New Ghanaian, and Cool FM (Nigeria) to name a few. Since then, Ankara Miami has made both social and financial contributions to entities including the African Heritage Cultural Arts Center, HANDY, Inc., Nigerian American Foundation, and Embrace Music Foundation. Its year- round events have included toy drives, networking mixers, and sponsorship for other African- related events.
Stay connected as Ankara Miami continues to heighten the awareness of the modernization of African culture on a local, national, and international platform.
