Fashion trends seen through Google searches

Fashion trends, such as skinny jeans and Palazzo pants, can spike and fall quickly year over year, and it can be tough to keep up. Maybe trends in Google searches for specific fashions can help. Hiroko Tabuchi and Josh Katz for the New York Times mapped a handful of fashion searches over time so you can see some of the regional changes.

The Fur Trade

The idea behind this infographic was the astonishing news that fur was 'back in fashion' and that many fur breeders in Europe were inviting top UK designers to travel over to their farms to work on the fur for their collections. They are also asking young designers to experiment with fur in their collections, something that would have been unheard of in recent years.

This graphic follows the fur trade from the animal to the buyers and through to the designers and finally the Shops that sell it. It shows just how many animal pelts it takes to make a fur coat, which animal and how this is done.
