Picture an ancient market in Zanzibar. Traders from Ceylon have crossed the Indian ocean braving the Barbary Coast pirates. They make their way to Zanzibar where they can trade spice for colorful cloth and other exotic treasures from far away lands. “ Trade Winds” captures the spirit of new discovery, and historic trade. Modern designs in vivid colors mix with ancient visual flavors to create a rich and timeless collection.
Rich images evoking the treasures of the far east, Tradewinds features exotic colors and flavors reminiscent of the centuries old spice trade. By Lily Ashbury for Moda.
