Beautiful, angelic, feminine, powerful. It’s not a mystery why designers are choosing butterfly prints for their spring 2009 collections. They represent resurrection and in these hard times, we are all hoping for some serious changes to occur soon.
Ever changing and transcendent, designers created new ways to highlight these beauties by experimenting with soft and bright colors, using cut -out shapes and embroidery, and by layering chiffon prints to create a soft dimension.
Wear them as an accessory or cover yourself from head-to-toe in an ethereal gown. No matter how you choose to wear the trend, you can’t help but feel like a feminine, empowered goddess.
