Wild Side

There is a chill in the air tonight. I am actually freezing. So, maybe that's why I am thinking about fur. Fur and leopard prints were all over the fashion runways for Fall 2010. I am certainly inspired by the look and it is definitely on my list of what is happening or will be happening in design. Of course, animal prints have always been en vogue. Done tastefully, and the design is classic. Used in an unexpected way, and the look is fresh and on trend. Of course, let's face it, in the hands of an non-professional and over done, the results can be a train wreck of tacky. When it comes to fur and leopard prints, less is more and consult a professional.
