Why is “tribal” outdated? It is still a word as far as I know. There are tribes, still. And there were many in the past from whence much of this fabric originates. This is political correctitude run amok. Put me on to the MInistry of Very Outdated.
Such a Parisian photo. Different nationalities together in fun outfits. The prints on both of them are fabulous. I am running out to get my gladiators now, haha! Thanks! Nothing like Paris in the summertime. http://www.pippihepburn.etsy.com
The woman on the left is awesome… I usually hate that word (over-used, empty). But it truly fits here. Inspired and supremely skilful mix of pattern, colour and proportion for her own shape, look and personality. She has created a dynamic, authentic expression. It made me smile.
I love the fabrics…I actually find it progressive that someone has NOT complained (yet) that a white and asian female are wearing an “african” print…and not someone of african descent. I saw on style.com junya using african fabric in his newest collection and people are up in arms that no “african” models are even used. I think that’s narrow-minded to believe that only “african” people can wear this fabric. Whatever happened to buying, enjoying, and wearing fun things? This beautiful photo shows the fun…Thanks as always for catching the right moment.

‘Hopefully’ nobody is “ridiculous” enough to sue anyone in this model/african print ‘case’….
Some jackass sued Red Bull couple years back, because they were given false advertising. “Red Bull gives you wings”. They claimed that after years of drinking the sweet tarts flavored beverage they failed to ‘grow’ wings. Plaintif scored a couple million dollars in settlement.
