Global Adventure

“my country is the earth, and I am a citizen of the world.”

Eugene V. Debs (American socialist, 1855-1926)-

Photoshoot by Vogue (To see their feature buy the March issue out now!)

This year the runways came alive with a riot of rainbow colours, prints, feathers, frills, and chunky beads all with a heavy tribal accent.  Designers drew inspiration from exotic far flung destinations taking you on a ride from the African plains to the Far East. Etro and Hermes chanelled the look with their Spring/Summer ’08 collections. Shows were awash with saris, safari jackets, embroidery and ethnic scarves. This is one fashion adventure you won’t want to miss, so grab your passport and go global!
