Top 100 Pop Culture Trends in October

From City-Inspired Emojis to Neutral Rapper Fashion Shows

— October 12, 2015 — Tech
The top October 2015 pop culture include city-inspired emojis, neutral rapper fashion shows and an artful documentation of poorly stuffed taxidermy.

Based on the blog of the same name, 'Crap Taxidermy' is a colorful book highlighting the best-worst examples of poorly stuffed animals. The hardcover coffee table book is filled with the best shots from the hit Tumblr page.

Kanye West's second Yeezy collection showed at NYFW in a star-studded display that is a subtle evolution from last season's take on fitted athletic apparel, but this time appearing more Star Wars than military.

Finally, a series of city-inspired emojis speaks to the modern need for a single succinct symbol as a means to communicating an idea.

The top October 2015 pop culture perfectly summarize the shift in consumer ideals in terms of consuming content made by consumers themselves.
