African-Inspired Looks at Moschino Cheap & Chic Spring 2013 London Fashion Week

Just when I thought the fashion industry’s obsession with African-inspired wax prints was just for a season or two, Moschino Cheap & Chic designed stunning looks for their Spring 2013 collection at London Fashion Week.

Maybe Moschino’s creative director, Rossella Jardini and Cheap And Chic’s designer, Francesca Rubino is just as obsessed with African batik prints as we are all?

I do however love the tropical, pineapple prints!

Much of this collection I can definitely see on who I call – the industry’s prints ambassador fashionista Solange Knowles. Speaking of Miss Knowles, she was spotted at New York Fashion Week rocking a wax print hat by South African fashion label Babatunde.
