Trend:Animal Prints
Animal print and animal pelts have been synonymous with luxury and wealth since the rise of civilizations. It is thought to be the oldest form of clothing and as time went on they also started being used to decorate home via carpets. Wild animal prints (thankfully not skin or fur) have come back onto the fashion scene of late from handbags and shoes to accessories and bed linens, this fun and funky trend seems here to stay.
