Currently Trending: The Fringe Leather Skirt

This post is inspired by the many, many instagramers and bloggers I’ve seen wearing the leather fringe skirt over the last two or three months.  One in particular, @elle_ferguson, was wearing the skirt seen below. The last time I checked, this photo had 7,916 likes on it–so obviously I’m not the only one obsessing.

Now, after doing my research, I came across a Kuwaiti designer who has been sharing posts of her fringe skirts (in suede) over 8 MONTHS ago.  That is by far the earliest I have seen anyone promoting this trend, and I’m wondering how many designers copied her look.  I would guess that the look originated from Kuwait or one of the Middle Eastern countries because it is so hot there all the time, this type of skirt would not only be stylish it would be ideal. I can’t say the same for designers based in New York, London, or Paris.  Either way, check her out, her designs are beautiful and probably aren’t made in a factory so they are likely to be of higher quality and craftsmanship than other mass-produced versions.
