It’s Spring, which means Easter Bunnies, late season flu and cool, dotty, high-fashion videos promoting the summer collections. The retro-trend continues and the design trend in beauty stock photos in summer 2012 will be lead by cut outs
Fashion trends this spring and summer are set to get deliciously garish and nostalgic. If designers and art directors are inspired by these seasonal fashion flicks, it’s likely beauty stock photos will be collaged and mashed. And expect some unusual reference points for those using beauty stock as fashionm is looking back to simpler times, of ice-creams on the beach, space age hot-rods and VHS tapes. It seems the influence of Mad Men rolls on.
