Trend Alert: Scarf Prints and A Tribute to Madiba

July 18, 2012

Today is Nelson Mandela’s Birthday… Visionary, leader and fashion icon! Yes you heard me, fashion Icon!

Scarf printed dresses, tops, trousers and tunics are hot fashion items right now. Many say this trend was inspired by Versace, which may be somewhat true, but I think the visionary behind this trend has got to be Nelson Mandela with his iconic, multi coloured Madiba Shirts

In celebration of Madiba’s birthday (he was born 94 years ago today on the 18th July 1918), we scoured the web to find scarf print pieces that we’re loving right now. Take a look…
