When Are We Going To Have Models With Tribal Marks?

When are we going to have models with tribal marks? Won't it be soooooooo cool and avant garde. I am sure if Domenico Dolce or Calvin Klein went to the North or Western Naija, he might start something like this as fashion designers are always looking for the next big thing like Alek Wek. This is a good idea for new up and coming fashion designers who want to distinguish themselves from other generic designers.

Fellow fashionistas, i just want to find out what your views are on this.

Lets wait for Mcqueen or Dior to make it the next cool thing. Cosmetic surgeons might soon start jumping in glee.

as people pointed out you can draw tribal marks on your models if you feel so inclined.

Unless you're advocating for adults[b] such as yourself [/b] to get the marks on their faces and then hope for modelling gigs?

Or what are you getting so emotional about?

alek wek is supermodel because she's really tall and really dark. works very well with cool colors and serves very well as a contrast. even wek complains about this in an interview where she says that designers or photographers usually use her for works to portray some romantic idea about africa or 'jungle' themes etc or just use her skin as color contrast

tribal marks will only make certain clothes (native/ african print themes) look good. keep in mind these designers are trying to SELL their clothes to a specific type of audience (white, modern). if they want tribal marks, they will paint it on their models. they don't need to go finding one with natural marks.

if black models are having a hard time on the fashion industry because of this reason, more so girls with tribal marks or even albinos or what have u.

get what i mean?

If Alek Wek could make it to the rank of SUPER-model, then there is no way a Touareg or gogobri with tribal marks can't make it, you can use make up to cover it up when the need arises. But the thing is that a lot of super models look generic, so tribal marks would make them unique and stand out.

models with tribal marks won't be very, what's the word. they don't have many looks. they only have one look and therefore will only be able to work with designers that are using "tribe" or "native/ avant garde" themes in their shows. they won't be able to work many regular shows. just the cliche "out of africa" type of shows.

look at it this way, make up artists can put marks on the models to give the impression of tribal marks but models with tribal marks will always carry it and can't cover their mark when they model for modern/ regular clothes (which is 90% of the time)
