Most Memorable Covers of 2018
Fashion trends are known to take unprecedented turns with each season. Fashion magazines are the best way to catch the gist of trends that are currently hot. The casting of talent and models in magazine covers reflect a lot about the hottest buzz of the fashion sphere. The theme of “inclusivity” ruled the fashion world this year and it was all captured in the covers of prominent fashion magazines. Keep yourself updated with the latest trends and maybe even create one with a Diploma in Fashion Design with JD Institute of Fashion Technology, one of Bangalore’s top Fashion Schools.
