    The 2003 Smithsonian Folklife Festival features the living traditional cultures of Mali, Scotland, and Appalachia.  Among today's (June 29) scores of events, was a fashion show of Malian (West African) inspired fashion (some of the fashions are pictured below).  The fashion show is scheduled to run again on July 4 at 11:45 and July 6 at 1:15 PM.
