Born in Africa to French wildlife photographer parents, Tippi Degré had a most unusual childhood. The young girl grew up in the African desert and developed an uncommon bond with many untamed animals including a 28-year old African elephant named Abu, a leopard nicknamed J&B, lion cubs, giraffes, an Ostrich, a mongoose, crocodiles, a baby zebra, a cheetah, giant bullfrogs, and even a snake. Africa was her home for many years and Tippi became friends with the ferocious animals and tribespeople of Namibia. As a young child, the French girl said, “I don’t have friends here. Because I never see children. So the animals are my friends.”
I’m jealous and also 99.9% sure this is the prequel to mean girls
I cannot believe Curvy Kate’s audacity to outright steal the work of a high school student for some insipid marketing message.
Shame on you, Curvy Kate. Shame on you.

Holy SHIT. The entire point of the artwork was to desexualize skirt length - to mark the lengths as scars, extending from a black, almost funereal skirt. It was meant to mark these preconceived notions of what is and isn’t acceptable as violent wounds on a woman’s body, reminding us of the central role enforced modesty plays in rape culture.
FUCK YOU SO MUUUUUUUUUCH
