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...
