"Models Wearing Head Wraps From Gaultier's 2010 Fall/Winter Collection"
Seeing these head wraps kind of annoyed me at first because there are a lot of us who are afraid to accept our own standards of beauty and once the mainstream gives it the go ahead it's then okay to wear them. Maybe he was paying his own homage to African culture and if he was I definitely appreciate it.
"There is Nothing Like A Beautiful Head Wrap"
Well...I still wear mine regardless and so do a lot of other women. I wear mine all year long depending on the outfit and those head wraps are made out of some of the best Senegalese fabric on the planet, which kept may head warm through many German Winters. See, ladies what some of you think is not fashionable to show your cultural pride others admire it too... they just won't tell you that they admire our beauty.
I'm kind of tired of hearing the words exotic, primal, animal, jungle, safari, nomadic, tribal, primitive and third world when describing African, Indian and Asian fashion influences. There's nothing primitive about any of our cultures so the word to best describe these aesthetics is the word beautiful. There's nothing exotic about any of us other than we don't look like them- have our own beliefs of beauty and style... we may be different physically but we also belong to humanity.
Thou shall love thy head wrap...
