These photos are part of an amazing photo shoot posted by Jak & Jill. Their photographs are a constant source of inspiration and I love seeing which “runway” prints people are wearing out on the town. Check out the entire post!

ERDEM

Erdem put together one of my favorite resort collections. I love each of these pieces, both for their prints and styling. Gorgeous!

UMBRELLA PRINTS

These beautiful fabrics come from Umbrella Prints, an Australian textile house by Amy Prior and Carly Schwerdt. The play between color and texture is just perfect and what drew me to the collection were the “Trimmings Packs,” which are perfect for collages or color/mood boards. The dynamic duo, which can be found on etsy, also sell cards and jewelry based on their designs.

ROSA CHA

This lovely array of prints is from Rosa Cha’s Spring ’11 collection. I LOVE that skin print and the geometrics seen above are perfect for the swim market. Beautiful!

Anna Maria Horner

With piecing and pattern mixing being so popular, quilting fabrics are a great place to look for inspiration. One of my favorite designers is Anna Maria Horner, and she has a fabulous new collection called Innocent Crush. The patterns and colors are beautiful on their own, but the true magic happens when they are cut and sewn into garments, quilts, home accessories etc..I love the print mixing in the pillows and check out those pants!
