Fashion is such an individual's style and each of us has our own unique way to display it.
The Beginning of Bohemian Style
Some 1500 years ago, the Roma people, also known as Gypsies, were uprooted from northwest India, forcing them to begin years of wandering and migrating. They were people considered worthless and outsiders. For years they were discriminated against until they found some hope when the Roman Empire and the king of Czychosloviaka offered them protection, acceptance, and privileges.
Before long, they settled in Paris after the French Revolution during economic and poverty upheaval. The artists and musicians at the time took to wearing used and old clothing trying to survive. And so, with their flair, a culture began called Bohemian.
During the 60s and 70s and the hippie movement, another twist became another part of the Bohemian style.
