Cultural heritage! Dresses in Ethno design.
The latest Ethno trend has set the fashion world on fire since 2011. The colourful patterns, which look as if all the indigenous people of the earth had taken over the design workshops and textile printing works of the fashion industry, have become simply indispensable; especially in the summer collections. Ethno designs are equal with a certain courage for extraordinary colour mixes and for special graphical patterns.
The movement towards Ethno prints, also known as Aztec or Navajo patterns, concerns almost every single piece of clothing. Coats
, shoes, tops, but also wallpapers, jewellery and furniture come with this special natural cosmopolitan touch. But Ethno prints simply work best on summer dresses on tanned skin or of course also on ankle-length trousers
combined with a single-coloured top.
Colourful Ethno dresses – Exotic and extravagant.
Which culture the Ethno pattern originally stems from, mostly doesn’t really matter. The Ethno look stands for a fashion movement only and not for a political and cultural statement.
Accordingly, most of the Ethno fabrics are a crazy mixture of patterns from various different indigenous people. The focus lies on the look and not on the meaning: Zig-zag of the Aztec, squares of the Incas, patterns of the Native Americans or parts of the Aborigines are combined, freshly constructed and recoloured; completely unique and new Ethno designs
are the results. Their exotic fabrics are true eye catchers in their own right, so when it comes to combining them with accessories, less is definitely more. One perfect match with the Ethno style is for example a simple golden bracelet or another discreet piece of golden jewellery. And if you want to reduce the mixture of prints a little, simply wear a plain scarf in the same colour shade as the dress.
A journey from fair trade shops to the online stores of the designer fashion labels.
After the massive Ethno hype of the 70’s, it had become quiet all around the detailed prints. But in the year 2010, a new Ethno hype emerged and even today there seems to be no end to it. So, the days are over when Ethno had the connotation of panpipe players, because these days the detailed and diverse prints are a strong part of every fashion fan. Feel like giving the Ethno style a try?
