Style Hunter: Marchesa Inspired by Africa

Pictures of the gorgeous Blake Lively attending the launch of New York's Fashion Week Night looking amazing as always. In between laughing with Anna Wintour, she posed in her Marchesa dress. I have to say on first glance I thought that it may have been designed by an African designer. What is with all that African print influence? I had a bit of hope that it may have been an African designer. But no. Marchesa. Please, please, please local designers, let's own our own influences and aesthetic. Let's take it authentically to the world and not let them appropriate it for themselves. The talent is here. We just need to get it out there.

What do you all think?
