Borrowing from African Prints for Spring 2013

So last year I picked up a dress that would fall under the “Tribal” trend and absolutely adore it. On brown skin, bright-colored prints look absolutely amazing. Now it seems everyone is onto the trend and we are seeing the prints everywhere. This “tribal” trend is really just borrowed from the beautiful and colorful African prints worn for centuries all over the African continent. And all of its regality, pomp and circumstance, and not to mention masterful headpieces have been noticed by the rest of the world and can’t be missed for Spring 2013.

There are a slew of African and non-African designers to go to for these beautiful garments, I can’t even list them all, but I’m really liking Boxing Kitten and Peter Pilotto for some of these great prints. See below for more inspiration including an old African inspired photo of myself in a headwrap taken several years ago downtown.
