Top 50 Pop Culture Trends in April

From Female-Empowering Temporary Tattoos to Sci-Fi Helmets

— May 1, 2020 — Pop Culture
This list of April 2020 pop culture trends explore different ways media incorporates itself in other industries to appeal to a broader audience overall. Many labels approach collaborations and new concepts in creative ways including with emerging brands.

One standout example is luxury fashion designer Christian Cowan and his latest work with Inkbox and the Powerpuff Girls. The nostalgic cartoon evokes pleasant memories as it is designed in the form of Inkbox's temporary tattoo technology. Another great pop culture example this month is by LEGO, inviting consumers to create their own Star Wars helmets. The LEGO kits have over 600 pieces and comes with a display stand to showcase the finished product. There are helmets that come in the style of fighter pilots, Boba Fett, and Stormtroopers
