28 Nov The last tribes and their legacy in fashion
Lately, fashion tends to be globalized. So much that we forgot the typical attire of each ethnic group and region; as well as the handcrafted and the concept of unique and not mass produced pieces. In this account, we can find many of these traditional attires through beautiful portraits. As you will see, many of them have actually begun to be part of the collective imaginary of western and globalized fashion, such as the necklaces of the Masai women.
I want to write a few posts to talk about other blogs or accounts on social media that inspire me and that I never get tired of looking at. This is the case with the beauty adorned instagram account:
In the account we can see portraits of women from all over the world dressed in the typical attires of their region, many of them very striking. Lately, fashion is losing its roots little by little. From time to time it is good to be able to contemplate traditional attire of an area or of a tribe or ethnic group. Its beads, fabrics, costume jewelery and make-up that they use; to be able to have new sources of inspiration and at the same time learn more about traditions and fashion throughout the globe.
Feathers, beads, embroidery, fabrics, necklaces … Each culture has had its own way of interpreting beauty throughout history, and the richness of the outfits of some of them has pleasantly surprised me. Each one uses what is most at hand depending on what part of the world they belong to and what climate they have in that place, but of course, if they have something in common, it is their immense creativity and their surprising and colorful beauty full of clothes and handmade accessories.
In this account, in addition to that, there are numerous artistic portraits.
