Colours of the Vanishing Tribes by Bonnie Young
Bonnie Young, intrepid explorer and researcher for Donna Karan, presents her photographs that have brought the colours and patterns of global tribes to the catwalks of one of the world's leading fashion designers. The book is organized by colour, ranging from the blues of China, through the reds of the monasteries of Tibet, the ambers of Mali, the indigo of the Saharan Tuaregs, to the yellows and wine purples of the Woodabe people of Niger and the green and greys of Vietnam. Also recorded are the finer details of handmade textiles, jewels, painted faces, houses, doors and the natural environment. Designed by Trey Laird, Donna Karan's creative director, this text is aimed at those interested in fashion, travel, design and the rich creativity of various cultures.
