Faux leopard fur coat

The chemical revolution in textiles in the first half of the 20th Century gave the fashion industry a whole range of new synthetic fibres that often surpassed natural materials in terms of strength, ease of care, durability, and price. Alongside practical fabrics such as nylon and terylene, the new technology allowed the development of substitutes for prestigious materials such as real fur, making them affordable and accessible for everyday fashion pundits. Nalla Fashions was an Auckland company that specialised in fake fur jackets.
