Wodaabe in Africa



Quote:
With a real feeling for style, a love of outlandish fashion and a great sense of fun, young Wodaabe men and women search for objects in the marketplace with which they can create new and exciting ornaments. Into their traditional festival attire they incorporate odds and ends that they feel will make them look more stunning.
Items such as suitcase locks and imitation gem stones are made into decorative neck pendants by the men, while the women add small hand mirrors to their embroidered skirt designs and hang torch bulbs beside leather amulet pouches as part of their decorative belts...

One more from the same book... /wikipedia

Burqa

Quote:
A burqa (also burkha, burka or burqua) is an enveloping outer garment worn by women in some Islamic traditions for the purpose of cloaking the entire body. It is worn over the usual daily clothing (often a long dress or a shalwar kameez) and removed when the woman returns to the sanctuary of the household.

gius, my apologies about the lack of color.. it's a book from the 50s.. there are some sporadic pages in color but nearly all of them are black and white.

also.. don't shoot me for taking photographs!.. the pages are too big to be scanned.. i hope that's an excuse and W magazine scanners stay away from denying the big lie.

love it, MP :p thank you~ i didn't notice they were all photos actually.. the quality still seems okay, unlike the one i took with the camera

the kuna girl you posted and the two women standing (post #9) that come after her photo, they're wearing molas Someone in my class brought a few of those.. her son is Mexican, I think. the technique they use is 'reverse appliqué'... you layer fabrics on top of eachother and cut out shapes/layers to reveal coloured layers underneath... these cut areas are then sewn down so it stays put.

that sounds so interesting, gius, I've seen women doing those blouses about a dozen times and I never paid enough attention or even knew they had an specific name, shame on me!. I love the all-white molas, I think they're all from the Oaxaca region.. or perhaps Veracruz, I'm not sure.. but they're beautiful..
