These beautiful butterfly innovations are incredibly fantastical. Butterflies are often seen as elegant and delicate insects, and in many parts of the world they are considered good luck charms. Due to the beauty of this insect, it has translated into many different mediums and product designs that appeal to women of all ages.

Fashion editorials, clothing and even home furnishings have been influenced by butterflies. For example, Nissan had a concept design called ‘Teana,’ which was made with butterfly winged seating, and an exterior that resembled the insect. Japan also saw a butterfly craze, which involved clips that people attached to their nostrils to tighten and firm their noses without having to get expensive plastic surgery.
