Top 20 Trends of the Week

From 3D Printed Heels to Tech-Charging Furniture

— April 17, 2013 — Pop Culture
The top performing articles this week were an interesting mix between tech and fashion innovations, some of which came together in the same product, like 3D printed heels.

The shoes in question were actually a concept, but show a great deal of promise along with an innovative and appropriately modern design. On the less technologically advances side, fashion publications like Vogue Brazil got plenty of attention for editorials with a slightly nostalgic western aesthetic.

One of the most bizarre fads covered in the past week was a blog that compiled images of dogs wearing pantyhose. Supposedly having started in China, this very offbeat phenomenon drew in a great deal of views.

For more information on the cutting edge trends dominating a variety of industries, take a look at Trend Hunter's Trend Reports.
