Tie-dye was said to be up-and-coming for Fall in 2018. Now it is up-and-coming for Fall this year. Whereas, my own tie-dye fabric which I have owned since my daughter, Crystal, was maybe four years old had been up-and-coming to be made into a beautiful garment since 2006. *Giggle* Well, if you are from West Africa, you know very well that ain’t nothing up-and-coming about wearing adire (the yoruba name for tie and dye). It’s a traditional wear from where I come from! Or maybe my opinion is just merely influenced by my love for adire. Not sure it ever went anywhere. Although this stance is debatable.

Late last night, I saw a Dior bag in a Nigerian movie “Your Excellency” on Netflix and wanted to check it out. So I visited the Dior’s website this morning but was taken aback by the blue and white tie-dye look below. The styling is so on point. I love the sporty-retro and definitely classy approach. Weird I mentioned retro but it really kinda is. As a Nigerian, I have always loved tie-dye clothing except in t-shirts and sweatpants. Even though the Dior skirt and jacket outfit is looking good to wear, I have also always been the one not to waste my money on buying ready-made anything tie-dye except on fabrics made by the locals in Nigeria which I can convert into a beautiful skirt or dress. Well, I guess it is time to pay a visit to my seamstress. This Dior outfit is looking really good but that price tag is one kind jor (jor is Yoruba for please).
Dior’s tie-dye creations for its Pre-Fall 2020 collection are super gorgeous. Below are looks from the collection. According to the Maria Grazia Chiuri,
the Fall 2020 collection initiates an approach that’s daring in its simplicity: questioning the very meaning of fashion.”Christian Dior’s website
