Traditional Creole dress from Martinique











Women dressed into traditional Creole clothes in Martinique. Creole dress consists of a long skirt of madras cloth worn over a white cotton chemise. It is trimmed at the neck with lace which adorns the sleeves and neck.  In the head there are elaborately folded wraps.
Nowadays Creole dress still remains popular among Caribbean women and plays an important role as a national dress in the French Caribbean islands.
