Friday’s Food for Thought: Map Fashion

Maps are not only fun to look at and explore, but also great to wear. Learn more about this new fashion trend.


Maps are not only fun to look at and explore, but also great to wear. First Lady Michelle Obama recently wore a map-printed dress while co-hosting The Ellen DeGeneres Show. The dress is Gucci and features a 17th century-style map. Instead of locations, the dress displayed words like “Sensibility,” “A Great Heart,” and “Honesty.” According to US Weekly, the dress was inspired by “La Carte de Tendre,” a French map from 1654 depicting an imaginary land of love.

Join the trend and check out these map fashion statements:
