I am so excited to see some new print trends emerging on the Fall ’13 runway! I love moody, textural prints, but it is about time we had some new prints in the mix. Right? Some of my favorite concepts can be seen in Matthew Williamson’s Fall collection, including: bayaderes (those of you in the Pattern Observer courses will recognize this from last month’s Chelsea’s Challenge) and holographic embroidery. The dip-dye and jewel prints continue trends that we have seen for the past season or two, but they both appear a bit softer and laid-back than in the past.
If you are interested in developing a print collection of your own, then please check out this free series on developing a collection for your portfolio, or consider joining me for The Sellable Sketch Workshop. Registration opens next week and I expect it to sell out quickly. Register for the wait list here.
