Knotty Behaviour

Tuesday, August 12, 2014
Dreadlocks have been around for thousands of years and have appeared in many cultures around the world from the Maasai men of Kenya to the the Indian Sandus in Nepal and of course the Rastafarian Movement in The Western World.


A few decades ago being a Rastafarian and having dreads even in Jamaica was seen as taboo and an indication of low social class and status. However, with the rise of visionaries such as Bob Marley and the natural hair movement dreads are both an international statement of oneness with nature and a major fashion trend. Designers have transformed dreadlocks into a truly unique fashion statement that adds allure and exoticism to the runway.


Design houses such as Moschino, Max Mara and Chanel have featured models donning locks on the runway in recent years and have really helped to elevate and publicize dreadlocks as more than an obscure practice to a bonafide fashion statement that is here to stay.

  1. Bob Marley and his dreadlocks are so iconic.. he really popularised the look! Maybe I am biased cause I am a big fan!
