Exaggerated Couture

Fashion goes to extreme lengths and heights
Implications - In recent years, fashion stayed in safe, comfortable territory. Designs appealed to consumers who wanted items that were easily transferable to everyday living. Now, however, more designers are once again experimenting with exaggerated and over-the-top looks, creating pieces that exceed natural lengths and heights to capture attention. While neither practical nor wearable, many of these designs become coveted items for true fashionistas who want to make a statement. What’s more, such exaggerated design may branch out to inspire other industries such furniture, architecture, cars and more.
