City Tribal

Tribal prints are very close to my heart, because back on the coast of Honduras our Garifunas tribes (African) and the Mayans that live in the mountains wear them all the time. I did not only embrace their dances, I also learned how to mix and match patterns and color-block from their daily attires. So naturally, I am a pattern mixer by heart and this outfit pretty much represents my style. It is interesting how many times we can get inspired by sources such as street style, magazines or runways...however, at the end we find ourselves finalizing the outfit with our own personal touches, which in my case they come straight from my roots. How about you? Do you have a source of fashion inspiration that you want to share?

Estampados de tribus vienen desde el fondo de mi corazón, ya que aprendí mucho de las tribus Garifunas Africanas en nuestra costa y así también de los pocos indios puros Mayas que todavía residen en nuestras montañas. Yo no solo aprendí su baile, si no también la forma de combinar estampados y colores en sus conjuntos diarios. Así que puedo decir que yo soy una mezcladora de estampados de corazón y este conjunto en particular, representa mi estilo personal.
Es interesante la cantidad de veces que nos inspiramos por medio de revistas, estilo callejero o las pasarelas, pero al finalmente nos encontramos poniéndole a nuestro conjunto el toque personal que llevamos en el fondo del corazón, pues en mi caso es mi origen.
Tienes tu un origen de inspiración que quieras compartir? Me encantaría escuchar de el.

    I grew up in a small Brazilian village, so most of my cuisine and fashion inspirations comes from my childhood there. This is a short and sweet post, thanks for sharing your sources of inspiration.

    Ciara.
