Fashion is not something that exists in dresses only. Fashion is in the sky, in the street, fashion has to do with ideas, the way we live, what is happening.

Burberry Prorsum 2012
In 2012 Spring collections, you'll find an impressive varierty of brocade prints in Jonathan Saunders RTW Spring Collection and that of Marc Jacobs. My absolute favorite fall collection that has adopted African-style batiks is Burberry Prorsum 2012 RTW collection. The adoption of beach and tribal prints has been done before by Oscar de la Renta, Etro, Giambattista Valli and Diane Von Furstenberg, Alexander McQueen, to name a few. I love how the looks can be dressed up or down, depending on how they are accessorized. I must say, seeing a bit of my heritage make waves in fashion runways makes me proud to be African.
