Imagine 14th century Mexico where an empire flourished with diverse culture. It was a community that adored drama, poems and songs. They were also into architecture and agriculture. Good economic structure was built and there was trade among people. Guess what they used for their purchases?! Cacao beans. Yes, beans in exchange for food, cloth, golden statue, etc. They worshipped a patron god and practiced human sacrifice. Part of the second class society was into arts and crafts. And can you believe that chocolate originated from their cuisine? Way cool!
This empire had sense of style too. Women wore blouse, skirt and braided hair while the men donned cape and loincloth. Sandals and jewelry like bangles were common to those of high birth.
They were the AZTECS.
Fast forward to 2013… The artistic designs created by the Aztecs have graced the fashion runways in several places around the world.

Aztec patterns are all over many fashion pieces- pants, top, skirt, shawl, bag, cardigan, swimwear, accessories, dress and others. The patterns in bold (and sometimes muted) colors with various shapes and lines have won the hearts of many fashionistas worldwide. Its addition to a wardrobe adds an edge to one’s overall look. Maybe it’s about the fierce combination of tribal influence and geometric motif.
