Coup de Ceour...

.
These stunning photos stopped me in my tracks...
the beautiful models, fabric and design of the dresses,
the choice of accessories, hair styling...
I just had to share
.




In fact, I love these so much,
I'm going to keep the photos and have similar dresses made up
by the local dressmaker on my next trip to West Africa.
I always have clothes made for me by the local tailor or dressmaker
when I travel afar
- in fact I'm the proud owner of an entire wardrobe full of the most beautiful creations,
both locally inspired and "copies" of european designs...
If you've never tried doing this,
I'd highly reccommend trying on your next trip abroad - a good idea
is to first have a favourite dress "copied", then if you're
happy with that, be more adventurous and
try something more locally inspired...

They are gorgeous dresses. You are absolutely right about dresses being made in their native places. They are much more fun to have and wear.
