Black and white was the star of the Fall runway, but for a more elegant look you may want to incorporate this black-on-black trend. The look is classic, sophisticated, perfect for a night out and can be achieved with damasks, burnouts, sequin applications, embossing and eyelets. For the more casual consumer, try printing on black fabric with black ink or gel. These techniques just give a hint of depth and texture, but are much more affordable and have a more casual vibe. How will you incorporate this trend into your latest collection? Share your thoughts here or on the facebook page. I would love to hear from you!!
