What is Boho Fashion?

Labas Aleiki (Hello in Moroccan Arabic),
For those who aren't familiar with all the terminology, here are some of the information about Boho Fashion, and how it all started. Morocco was also an inspiration to all the ethnic fashion back then, and still is!

Hippies Created Bohemian Fashion


The Hippie Clothing originated in US by mid-60′s, the clothing style was popularized by the radical youth during that period. The Hippies are known to be rebellious in a subtle way, creating their own communities and groups, as well as other radical habits and practices.

Hippie, Indie, Boho, Vintage, etc…

It is hippie clothing style who has become and reincarnated as Indie Clothing (Independent Clothing) in the 80′s because the style refuse to follow trends, but their comfortable styling, ethnic taste, and accessories. It has later become the Bohemian Clothing upto the present.

Now Hippie Clothing is widely recognized in fashion industry as the Bohemian Fashion or Boho Fashion. More and more people are fascinated by the ethnic look of the hippie clothing style that is now popular because of the tribal trend this year.

Hippies ! We love nature...

Also, hippie groups are always into nature. My prediction is that the hippie clothing style or hippie fashion will become more and more famous. The campaign for environmental action to help Mother Nature will push it to its fame. They are known to use eco-friendly items to create their style and fashion.




Their use of natural fabrics and materials, as well as recycling vintage clothing. Vintage clothing as we all know is well patronized for their elegance and simplicity. It has truly become Indie Clothing revolving through time. It is the fashion of the past to future.



Bohemian or Boho style unites in itself vintage, gypsy, hippy and everyday styles.
Bold, creative personalities usually choose this style.
Boho style naturally brings out the uniqueness in you...

Live Bohemian, be free in spirit, be bohemian...

  20. I LOVE this! I was so into the Boho style years ago, and have since (as it often happens I guess) found myself in mommy-wear. Blah.

  22. Amazing! I love the twist on tribal you represent here...i'm looking for inspiration as we work with authentic tribal molas from Panama, we being myself and a sewing cooperative of indigenous mix women from extreme rural areas, combining the real thing with trendy fashion styles, ethnic fabrics and a bohemian indie bend.

    It's challenging getting seen, but our bags are actually quite stunning. It's taken three years of dedicated effort to help these women create a viable market, but we've just launched an Etsy page !

    Please visit us, i'm bookmarking your page and sharing it
