I've rolled back the legs for this season's silhouette - see Marc by Marc Jacobs SS09. Added a printed scarf around the neck - scarves continue to be on trend this summer. Last year's Marc Jacob's white sunglasses are still looking up-to-date for this summer.
Keeping the legs rolled back, I've removed the shoulder epaulettes and concealed pocket flap buttons. I've created an Obi inspired waist detail using a printed cotton fabric remnant and held it in place with my white 80's belt. For a finishing touch, I've added a gilt tiger's head necklace, which links with the belt buckle.

Ethical fashion isn’t a passing trend. Or, the latest fashion fad for young fashionistas. It is the future for fashion.
