Paris Street/IMAXtree

Loving hands doing embroidery, beading and printing are ways to create your unique look (even though someone else might have done the actual work!) We have seen many individualized casual sportswear pieces, even dresses featuring elaborate floral designs on the streets of London, Paris and Milan. And, quite importantly, shoes are benefitting from the trend as well.
