New York & Milan Fashion Weeks–There’s a definite movement in fashion this season and it comes with fringe benefits. From wispy, silky fringe on dresses, tops, scarves and skirts, to thick leather and suede fringe on handbags and tassels, fringe takes many forms and weights. It can also evoke various moods, from Gatsby’s Golden Age to Western Prairie to Contemporary Art.
