Mermaid Couture

Fashion and photography inspired by under-the-sea beauty
Implications - The sea has provided tremendous inspiration for designers, who have used the colors of the ocean, sea creatures and other marine elements to influence their creations from furniture to jewelry. Mermaids, or the idea of mermaids, have been of particular inspiration to fashion designers over the course of the year, as they have driven many editorial themes and provided impetus for creations like fish scale-style tights and elegant, oceanic gowns. Mermaid inspirations provide an ethereal beauty to fashion design, and can be translated into any area of design to create a feeling of fantasy and excitement that will undeniably capture attention.
