The faux fur trend is back and better than ever. Of course there was fur in the Fall 2017, but it made an appearance on our Spring 2018 Fashion Week runway's as well. Taking over displays while promoting faux fur. Starting in Ancient Egypt, the use of fur coats, handbags, and other decorative items has been seen as a claim to higher status and elegance. However, for what will be a proven cycling trend- real use of fur has made its way through history. Especially America in the mid- to late 50's, there was an even more encouraged sense of selling high sense fashion at environmentally cruel costs.
If it were not for the 70's awareness of the halt of real fur from organizations like ESA and PETA, the use of fabricated-fur would not be used today. But it is 2018 and here we are in a world where magazines like Harper’s Bazaar and Vogue started promoted faux fur!
After this transition, the trend started to die down. But, as well known, fashion can come in cycles and this is no exception. We are now seeing the comeback of transforming your look into an over the top statement. With different colors, cuts, and feel to choose from- it is no wonder the trend is such a hit in creating versatility. Hitting pretty much any well-known clothing brand today- faux fur has made its way back into the market and onto the streets.
