    CUT IT OUT   

Cut paper collages we’ve been seeing more and more of over the past few months. It’s a fantastic way to mix prints and show off your knowledge of other popular textile trends; think of it as the crazier version of the Block Party trend we highlighted last week. If this look is to over-the-top for your client base, simplify it by using prints with a smaller scale, and limiting the number of colors used in the overall design.

Daisies, whether photographic, painted, digitally warped or presented atop an abstract texture, designers are finding fresh ways to serve up this classic vintage flower. For more examples of how runway designers are interpreting this trend, be sure to check out resort collections from Alice + Olivia and Nina Ricci in addition to the designers shown here.

Transitional print concept that spills over from Fall 2014, but with a lighter, more springlike color palette. One part floral, one part Ukrainian embroidery, with a dash of fairytale whimsy thrown in for good measure, these prints bring a fresh, bohemian take on a trend your Grandmother would likely adore. To keep things really authentic, make sure to include references to traditional embellishment techniques such as cross-stitch or beading.
