The term 'Bohemian' itself began hundreds of years ago as a word that described the local eastern European gypsies, who hailed from an area called ‘Bohemia’. They were travellers who led unusual and nomadic lifestyles. Over time, bohemians used their fashion as an act of rebellion. The artist became the art. Exotic prints and textiles were mixed with historically outdated fashion, colours co-existed in bold ways that fashion had never seen before, the more embellishments the better!
