So I don’t really like the terms ‘tribal’ and ‘ethnic’ when describing styles… all sounds a bit imperialist to me…
.. But whether it’s the heat wave we’ve been enjoying, my revisiting of lots of my old stuff in the storage attic upstairs (or ‘Stockholm’ as it came to be known) or just because I’m a plain fashion victim… which ever, I’m currently revisiting an old love of traditional cultural stuff from all over the globe.
I’ve got lots of amazing fabrics, trinkets, drums, masks… you name it, it’ll be in a box upstairs in Stockholm…..
I’m particularly excited by all the jewellery… African trade beads, Ethiopian silver, Indian necklaces with bells… I loved my jewellery collection in my teens and twenties, but then it seemed to fall out of my favour somehow….
