Africa has been always a big source of inspiration for the designers worldwide. As trend changes, fashion comes back with a modern approach always. Everything from Africa has inspired different designers from different fields. Being it prints, patterns, bold and vibrant colors, nature, life etc. African tribal life and their elements are amazingly unique and Motivating to many design professionals. This time i am talking about batik prints which have become a popular trend among fashion victims these days. Summer trends 2013 will definitely see batik prints as a major trend with garments, accessories, Handbags, shoes, home furnishings etc. Tribal prints, Aztec patterns, ikat, geometric patterns and animal prints are some major key trends which lie under the exotic tribal collections.
