My safari inspiration

While I was unable to finish my dress this weekend, due to laziness and a busy schedule, I did have time to find inspiration to keep me motivated. While there are two themes that are running through my head while I make this dress, neither one really correlates to the other. But I hope you can see how I will combine African inspired textiles with a vintage bathing suit cut. Wish me luck!

I want to create a turban similar to this, to go along with the dress.

From Vogue Italia, April 2005
Vintage bathing suits inspire the shape of the dress.
These textiles are colorful and eccentric.
