GUESS WHERE THE INSPIRATION CAME FROM?



AFRICA!

 From, Milan to Paris to London to New York, it was as if all the Fashion designers were craving the same thing.........
On the Runways of the Spring/ Summer collection 2012,
 They embraced the culture of Africa and honored it's existence by show-casing Animal prints, Safari shades, Beads & Feathers.

I felt as if I was back home:-)
