Implications - Using animals for fashion isn't something many like to endorse; instead, brands are looking to incorporate these creatures into their products in other ways. Digital imaging and the use of materials to replicate critters are popular means to provide products with an animalistic nature without having to harm any actual animals. This gives brands a good image and caters to a demographic with very distinct tastes.
