Peacocks are one of the most beautiful birds in the animal kingdom -- there's no denying the rich colors of their feathers. So, it's no surprise that everyone has tried adopting those attributes to create different peacock fashions.

From a $1.5 million dress made completely out of peacock feathers to embellished leotards, each one is a stunning homage to the popular bird.

Implications - Animal-inspired fashions are getting bigger and bolder both on the runways and in stores. In textures and in prints, bird feathers, furs and skins from leopard to zebras are everywhere. Designers across the globe are adapting to this trend in recent collections and customers and fashion savants are loving it. Their bold nature and unique personal flavour is appealing to a consumer world looking to distinguish themselves based on presentation.
