Visually stunning, that is how I describe the hub of Haiti, its capital city, Port au Prince. In 1976, my high school graduation class went to Port au Prince. I was enthralled by the Haitian people with their passion for a kaleidoscope of mismatched textiles and turban head wraps, like layers of clothing. A much later realization was that what impressed me the most was fashion designers like Kenzo, who had an extraordinary eye for visually knitting designs, color and enviable textiles together into a harmonious story. I absolutely love this line and adore the complexities of patterns, colored to create a symphony of options. Culturally, these designs have different origins but they signify a modern melding in this new millennium.
