Boho is rocking for Spring/Summer 2009 fashion and African/ethnic influences are strong for the coming season too. Designers are looking all over the world for new looks: wild, animal prints team with earthy colors, and turbans top off many looks. The shapes of nature are updated in new wardrobe styles, and the fascination with global influences is highly evident.

Implications - The latest wildlife themes in the fashion industry stem from the globalization of modern culture. Fashion designers are releasing collections filled with tribal influences, wild animal prints and exotic fabric to appeal to the modern cosmopolitan consumer. Tribal fashion is found at every price point, from couture to budget-friendly diffusion lines.
