The collections secured by Owner and Designer, Ramon Carrasco offer a no-boundaries approach to style and creativity. You imagine it … he can create it. Many customers choose to bring in a family heirloom coat and watch it be transformed into a wearable piece of art.

Here are Ramon’s 2018 trends that stood out:

Patterns
Nature is basic and simple so he has styles reflecting a beautiful balance of the two. Patterns bring fashion to life and underscore the natural beauty of fur.

Geometric Motifs
Shearing, tiles and other imaginative techniques have allowed him to play with patterns, volumes and colors. The purity of mixing and matching shapes, styles and furs turns a coat into beauty … in a wealth of styles.

Special Touches
Adding stripes in a mix of colors, fur types, volumes and crafted patterns impart special effects to enhance the depth of fur’s natural beauty.

Reversible Coats
Instead of a regular lining, make yours a “raincoat” with the natural beauty of fur to make that glam look practical in New England. If it starts to rain, just turn your fur coat inside out. Imagine how warm you will be now that the natural fur is against your body.

Tribal Instinct
An enticing balance of the Primitive and the Modern, Ramon can achieve tribal looks by mixing colors, fur types and patterns.

Shearing
Clipped, cut or trimmed, sheared mink and fox makes for a playground of creativity. Shades and tones change and different hair lengths emphasize the 3-D look of fur. Combination Texture and contrasting with different fur can be paired with just about anything … great proof that opposites attract.

Street-Style
Reimagining, mixing high and low cut fur, checks and florals, sportswear and couture-like pieces … these are the looks we can expect to see, street-style in WeHa.

Karen Fillian, regional property manager of Bishops Corner and Crossroads Plaza for EDENS is enjoying a day sporting six different fur styles from Exclusive Furs. Whether she is getting off the elevator, waiting for lunch at Koma, or strolling the streetscape of Bishops Corner, she is doing it in style!

  • I find zero interest in promoting animal
    cruelty for frivolous fashion trends that have no basis in necessity or practicality.

    I would have thought weha and West Hartford are smarter than this. Gross.

  • This is disgusting and not the type of article I expect from We-Ha.com. Where is the news in this? The only news I see is animals being killed for fashion which is shameful. Is this here because they are advertisers? This is incredibly disappointing.
