Snake prints, twittering sparrows, and safari animals are only a glimpse of animal motifs this season. Woodland creatures like bunnies and squirrels are the main theme this year. Now, some may consider these motifs to be pretty childish. Hence, designers have experimented with these motifs by choosing smaller motifs in fabrics so as to give them a feminine touch.

Singapore – the fusion of fashion
In keeping with the multicultural theme of the country, fashion in Singapore is a huge fusion of east, west, north and south. For example, while you can see a major influence of American street dressing, fashion here is not without a dash of Japanese dressing style. The good thing about Singapore is that everything is accepted here. Further, since Indians, Malays, Chinese and Singaporeans coexist in the country, fashion tends to be a kaleidoscopic reflection of all these cultures.
