Artist Yinka Shonibare has such fascinating work. His beautiful designs play on African fabrics and the colonization of Africa that took place during England's Victorian era. The gowns and installations play with the idea of identity in such a way you can't help but get drawn into the narratives and question first impressions.
Notice the Chanel emblems on the dress to the far left.

I created A Chichi Life as a creative outlet for me to explore fashion and its connection to art and history. I hope you find plenty of beauty and inspiration here, and of course a dash of chichi style.
