  • Description

    On show in London tonight (Wednesday) were the latest fashions from Liberia -- designed for the British market but retaining the national flair. The show was held at the Liberian Embassy.

    The designs ranged from Mandingo dresses to variations of a party outfit worn by little tribal girls on special occasions, complete with beads at the ankles.

    Another style was inspired by a ceremonial dress worn by the Gri-Gri girl when she is formerly presented to society after four to six years training in the Gri-Gri bush school.

    Pineapples, which grow wild in Liberia, featured in dress patterns along with many other African-styled prints.
