The photographic parade of 2017 styles presented by the New York Times

TextileFuture hopes that its readers started well into the New Year, and we gift you in the first news item of 2018 with a photographic parade of 2017 styles presented by the New York Times.

Remarkable images from 2017, from Donald Trump Jr. to Nicki Minaj to Idris Elba to this one Chihuahua. Selected by Eve Lyons and Elizabeth Bristow, Introduction by Bonnie Wertheim

Sometimes our pictures tell the whole story.

In February, the photographer George Etheredge visited Donald Trump Jr. at his father’s 230-acre estate in Bedford, N.Y. The president’s son is a known hunter and outdoor enthusiast, but Mr. Etheredge felt drawn to more of a “Happy Gilmore” image, of Mr. Trump surveying the family’s Bedminster, N.J., green with a golf club and cart.

After spending some time at the Trump family’s Westchester property, Mr. Etheredge’s vision changed. “I saw this stump, and I thought it would be kind of perfect,” he said. His instincts were good: The picture was swiftly embraced by the internet and became a phenomenon in its own right, independent of the deeply reported article it accompanied.

Not every great picture we publish becomes a meme, but each one helps shape the way our readers understand the world. Here are some of our favourites from a year full of famous faces, furry friends, fashion and frivolity.
