Bright feathers, bold patterns, edgy fringe -- design elements of Native American cultures are being translated into modern 2011 styles in a big way.
Fashion’s top brands are showing a tribal influence this summer in everything from purses and dresses to necklaces and hair accessories. Urban Outfitters, Free People, BCBG Max Azria and Topshop are among the stores New Yorkers love that are offering Native American inspired pieces.
