Could fashion trends help drive rising fur prices up higher?
Fashion designers play a major role in worldwide fashion trends, and if early signs are any indication, fur could be very popular this year. That, in turn, might help boost the prices trappers and predator callers get for their furs.
“Hailed for its warmth, comfort, durability, and versatility; the praises of fur, and its many innovative applications, are being sung by the most prominent voices in the mainstream fashion industry months before the collections even hit the stores,” according to a Fur Commission USA story.
It will be interesting to see if these fashion trends can influence the next North American Fur Auctions and Fur Harvesters Auction sales results in May.
