Toy Couture

Fashions based on toys give consumers lighthearted apparel options
Implications - With conservative and polished dress the mark of a "grown-up," some consumers are fighting back by consciously embracing playful, toy-inspired fashions. Some examples may border on the extreme, but inspirations from toys are burgeoning as an aesthetic as designers experiment with popular knickknacks and consumers indulge their youthful sides. Whether they're based on Lego blocks or are clothes actually made of stuffed animals, these lighthearted creations truly appeal to the young at heart.
