Hats Off!

Noumea, New Caledonia…fashion can come in the most unlikely of places! The main square in town, Place des Cocotiers, hosted a celebration and brought out the local elders to display their Polynesian style!

Booths selling local crafts, homemade delicacies, and homegrown produce lined the square. But the women dancing and enjoying the music in their homemade hats stole the show for me!

Each trying to outdo the next in their woven palm hats…they were so excited that I liked them and wanted to take their picture!

Hats off to primitive style! Ladies, you look great!20121018-150736.jpg20121018-150810.jpg20121018-150845.jpg20121018-150941.jpg20121018-150954.jpg
