Africa- Mix and Match

Africa has always fascinated me. I feel that everything that comes from there has a special scent, that their music carries me in a mystical dance across the dunes. The people of Africa have a rich culture and this is reflected in their daily clothing. Each culture preserves its ethnic and distinctive features.
Whether it's about style or design, their clothing reflects the personality of beautiful, strong women and each piece of cloth symbolizes the characteristics of a particular culture. The patterns and the fabrics are simply wonderful; each design is symbolic and has a hidden meaning. African clothing styles thus succeed in reflecting the community, location, social status, beliefs of indigenous citizens and gain popularity in fashion shows worldwide.
I may not know much about symbolism, but I hope that I managed to be at least decent... 

M-a fascinat  dintodeauna Africa. Am impresia ca tot ce vine de acolo are un parfum aparte, ca muzica lor ma poarta intr-un dans mistic printre dune. Oamenii din Africa au o cultură bogată iar aceasta se reflectă si în portul  lor de zi cu zi. Fiecare cultură pastreaza etnia ei și caracteristici distinctive.
Fie că este vorba despre stil ori design, hainele reflecta personalitatea unor femei frumoase, puternice, iar fiecare bucată pânză simbolizeaza caracteristicile unei anumite culturi.Modelele și țesăturile hainelor sunt pur și simplu minunate; fiecare design este simbolic si are un sens ascuns. Stilurile de îmbrăcăminte africane reusesc astfel să reflecte comunitatea, locul, statutul social, convingerile cetățenilor autohtoni, si castiga popularitate in show-urile de moda la nivel mondial.  

Eu nu cunosc prea mult despre simbolistica, dar sper ca am reusit sa fiu macar decenta...
