Fierce: The History of Leopard Print


Jo Weldon chronicles the history of one of the world’s most beloved fashion patterns - leopard print!

This lush compendium, illustrated with full-colour images, celebrates leopard print's beauty and place in couture, and the women who have dared to wear it.

In nature, the distinctive markings on big cats served as camouflage, helping them to blend into their surroundings when hunting prey. Unlike these magnificent predators, humans have donned this distinctive animal pattern to be noticed; leopard print demands an audience. Jo Weldon reveals how this sexy, playful, decadent, and vibrant pattern, once reserved for royalty, came into vogue and became a staple of fashion.
