Bohemian chics' number one item fringe, has been part of the fashion industry for many years. It was around during the 60's with the flower power, and now it is trending again this season with Great Gatsby. Fringe was the hip trend of Spring’s most memorable shows like Joseph Altuzarra, Bottega Veneta and Nina Ricci… The Rodarte girls went rock star with a creative touch by using the fringe on leather biker jackets, dearest Hedi Slimane of Saint Laurent created a crocheted leather duster-length cape... The 'theme' inspired trends were endless of course once again on the fashion scene: Gucci interpreted the cabaret look and some designers took their inspiration from Native America. Fringe is also very popular amongst celebs –especially the boho ones- and will definitely by trending amongst street stylers this season too and it can range from swimwear, to clothing and accessories.
