The wearing of animal skins has been around since the dawn of mankind when our ancient ancestors hunted for survival; eating their flesh of the animal and clothing themselves in their skins to protect against the elements.
In five million years of human history we have continued to desire to clothe ourselves in the rich tones and patterns nature has bestowed on the wildest of Mother Nature’s creatures.
In the recent past it was still acceptable to wear the skin of wild creatures; indeed it was a symbol of wealth, sophistication and success. I am glad to say that those dark days of hunting beautiful animals for their skins and pelts in the name of vanity have almost completely been eradicated! Mankind has become ecologically responsible and we now choose to mimic nature’s best work using sophisticated manufacturing techniques to produce beautiful fabrics in which to adorn ourselves.
This beautiful animal print dress is inspired by the Masai Mara in Kenya an outstandingly breathtaking haven for viewing a congregation of all sorts of animals and birds. It boasts an average of 3 lions per square kilometre and an annual migration of over a million wildebeest. – It is a stunning destination where you are likely to be able to view the BIG FIVE animals of Africa, in an environment which is quintessential east Africa: flat savannah grassland stretching as far as the eye can see.
