When you think of tie dye, what is the first thought that comes to you. For some people, tie-dye reminds them of the 60s, a piece that has been rebirth from decade to decade. A vibrant pattern with color that exudes this feeling of love, peace and harmony. For me, tie-dye is one of those pieces that I’ve enjoyed since I was younger and still do today.
It’s one of those pieces when I know a good day awaits, I throw it on because it’s fun. My first tie-dye shirt, I made in my home economics class. I remember the process of making the tie-dye shirt to be simple and inexpensive. After all, to make a tie-dye shirt, all you need is the piece you want to dye and the dye.
[To see major brands like Prada selling tie-dye pieces for thousand of dollars always shocks me given the simplicity of the making process. Reality is tie-dye is one of those trends that isn’t going away, as fashion evolves so does the style of tie-dye. As someone who has a love for tie-dye, I’m happy to see it being a major trend this season.
