The Print: 'Ethnic' Print



It's becoming the 'go to' print for summer, bright, bold, mostly african prints. The print has been labeled by the industry as 'ethnic'. last year a few celebrities (such as Kelis, Beyonce & solange) were working the trend, the brand Boxing Kitten has a big celebrity following but the look has also been seen on the catwalk for 2011 at L.A.M.B and Oscar De la renta.
although african fabric is hardly a new thing!!(not going to take it there!) i'm glad it is getting the recoginition and reincarnation, i'm loving the new shapes and styles (batik brogues anyone!)
I seems the look is here to stay! yay!
i'm on the hunt for a pair of african print shorts......
