From fun and kitschy to formal and dramatic, the paisley has made a big comeback. This seems like a trend that is here to stay, so how can you adapt the paisley to fit your market?

Plan ahead, work in layers and prepare that celebratory glass of wine for when that repeat is complete! For a more formal take on the paisley trend, please see below!
