The ethnic trend is not a new one and neither is the mixing of cultures. What is new, however, is the amount of coverage this trend is getting this season. Multi-cultural inspired pieces are everywhere! Open a magazine, walk past a store window, turn on the tv. You can see strong African roots mixed with various cultures such as (but not limited to) Hawaiian, Nomadic or Asian influences.
I am seeing newspaper articles on how America is fast becoming a multi-cultural society, not in the sense that there are many races or cultures residing in the States but that much of the population is of mixed backgrounds. A form that requires you to check ‘White American’, ‘Afro American’ or Latino simply won’t suffice. We are too diverse a nation to be confined to boxes, so why should our wardrobes be any different. Embrace the world around you!
