Chelsea brought this emerging diamond trend to my attention and I absolutely love it for Fall ’13 and Spring ’14. It works for a variety of customers, markets and price points. The design possibilities are endless! Try updating this trend for your customer by playing with scale, color usage, texture and layout direction (why not try a few options that appear skewed or warped?). If you end up running with this trend I would love to see what you develop!

Have fun–Michelle
