Fashion has always been inspired by cultures from around the world and this Fashionista's style is no different! Designers are always pulling styles from around the world and adding their own spin. A few weeks ago at New York Fashion Week, Ralph Lauren presented his spring 2013 ready-to-wear collection that was inspired by traditional Spanish costume from matadors and women. He captured the true essence of how the Spaniards dressed; however, each garment had its own sexy flare and modern touch. I spotted my Fashionista while walking passed her on the sidewalk and couldn't resist talking to her. This Fashionista was just as daring as Lauren with her Native American inspired ensemble.
