Did you Know Animal prints have a history in themselves? If we trace back to the 18th century, the Europeans had started colonizing the Asian and African continent and they were the first ones to bring about the skins of leopards and tigers together. Soon enough these foreign patterns gave way to what is today famously known as animal prints.
Style icons like Marilyn Monroe, Brigitte Bardot, and Elizabeth Taylor have marked remarkable statements in animal prints. Our very own desi queen Shilpa Shetty has been seen sporting these prints even before anyone else had their hands on it.
