*I was looking online, as is my way, and it seems a lot of designers went shopping in African Markets for Spring 2008:
Left to Right: Oscar de La Renta African Print Dress, $2,450; Diane Von Furstenberg Ariki Dress, $1,200; Kevan Hall Dress, price upon request.
But I wonder how much that fabric costs over there...
