Afrocentric, Ethnic, Whatevah!

Whatever you call it, it’s hot and on trend. The use of textiles, animal print and craft work from various native parts of the globe is a huge trend in RL and SL fashion so I am paying my tribute to all of it right here in this post. Most fo the pieces in my looks are inspired from African countries but I have also seen some looks on the runway from Australia and South America. I love the colors, the warmth in the neutrals and the sense of primal fierceness I get in these garments. I feel like a lioness. I wanna pounce! Pounce the dreck off the grid. RAHHH!

Ok, enough of the sillies. Time for some fab fashion captured in print by the wonderfully talented Viola Rookswood aka Vanilla GODIVA. Enjoy!
