Trends don’t just materialize out of the sky, or in the case of today’s mermaid popularity, out of the sea. Trends swim through different areas, evolving in unusual ways, catching a wave here and there, until all of a sudden, they come crashing ashore. This year, spring fashion runways shimmered with glistening mermaid-themed designs; New York rapper Azealia Banks hosted several mermaid balls; and Discovery Channel’s faux documentary “Mermaids: The Body Found” caused such a stir that it prompted the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration to release a statement emphatically stating that mermaids do not exist. For trend-lovers, mermaids’ legitimacy doesn’t matter. Mermaids make great design elements.
