Hello LaPazions, well I have to tell you this is one tribute that I for one am very happy to see. I love when someone is inspired by something so beautiful that was taken away too soon.  I’m speaking of none other than the famous Zimbabwean Lion Cecil, that  killed in July by a very wealthy US Dentist. London is hosting it’s very own African Fashion Week, showcasing designs influenced by the continent.  I was enamored by Designer Mary Martins' tribute to Cecil the lion with this stunning dress:Mary Martin DesignDesigner Mary Martin stated “when she saw the lions short beautiful black mane, it inspired me to design this beautiful dress.” 

This is such a moving tribute that captured the majestic spirit of such a gorgeous strong and awe-inspiring animal.  This is Designer Mary Martin during her interview on what inspired her collection and this look:Designer Mary Martin

How do you feel regarding this moving tribute to such a majestic animal?  We cannot wait to hear your feedback.
