F is for Fashion Fix, Aztec

everywhere we look in the fashion world it's aztec.
either you love it or you hate it.
this pattern isn't for everyone, but i quiet like it.
but then again, i'm a pattern fiend when it comes to clothes.

so then what exactly is aztec?

the aztec pattern comes from the american indian people who lived in mexico around the 16th century.
they used bold bright patterns, lots of geometric shapes, and tribal symbols.
all their patterns had different meanings, and was full of symbolism.
every colour had a different meaning.
every pattern was constructed in specific ways to tell stories.
their fabrics were all hand woven, which makes these patterns even more amazing.
just think about how many hours went into each piece of fabric, and how unique it was.

but today it's just fun, colourful and easy.
a beautiful addition to your wardrobe.
as with most things in the fashion world it is an old trend that has just become fashionable again.
so no need to spend a fortune on owning something aztec, as you will be able to find something that has been around for a while that nobody else has. 
and once again vintage is king or queen in my case!
