Fantastical Fascination

Fairytale fashion illustrates a consumer demand for imaginative living

Implications - In attempts to detach themselves from the harsh realities of everyday life, consumers are looking to whimsical elements to add imaginative qualities to their existence. With real world situations often becoming too overbearing, consumers are turning to fairytale features as a way to add fictional aspects to their lives. This illustrates the growing need for consumers to express creativity in a way that is acceptable within society.
