(Above) The traditional bagpipe, a huge symbol of Irish culture, has been played for every single Win-
ter Park St. Patrick’s Day Parade. Bagpipes are woodwind instruments with reed pipes that are sound-
ed by the pressure of wind emitted from a bag squeezed by the player’s arm. The players typically

wear kilts, belt buckles, and other accessories of the traditional Irish bagpiper. There’s no St. Patrick’s

Day without hearing the tunes of an Irish bagpipe! Photo by Alyssa Wiboon.

(Left) Prints in French fashion are fickle. One of the hallmarks of the style is its

lack of color and patterns aside from a few exceptions, including, “toile.” Translat-
ing to “canvas,” the toile pattern features almost storybook scenes amidst a beige

background. It initially gained popularity back in the 18th century during the age

of realism when people desired art to reflect everyday life but has remained popu-
lar throughout the years. To pay homage to the print, Dior Homme’s 2022/2023 Paris

Fashion Week show included a collection based upon the toile print and offered a
modern alternative. This runway show, especially because behind it sat replicas of
Paris’s iconic monuments, proves the longevity of French fashion that makes it so

alluring. The same Breton shirt Audrey Hepburn once wore is as trendy as the gar-
ments on the Paris Fashion Week runways. Model photo courtesy of Reuters.
