Custo Barcelona

28 Mar 2010

Custo Barcelona is a designer based in Spain, pretty much world-renowned for their zany over the top print from head to toe look. Regularly showing at New York, London and Paris Fashion Weeks – this company is serious big business! I actually love their old school style from years ago more so than what they are doing now…but its always worth checking out their site if you want some print inspiration!

Print in Design NOW – Vintage/retro

16 Mar 2010

Vintage no longer seems to mean that you found it in a recycling boutique and had to get your nan to take it in for you. Vintage and retro is a new genre in textile and fashion design and I love it! All those beautiful textile designs from the 50’s and 60’s and the dresses our grandmothers wore are being re-interpreted for today. Of course – we still love our op shop finds – so keep hunting girls!Prorsum

This picture here is from a Burberry Prorsum range.

Leon Bakst & The Ballet Russes

14 Mar 2010

Russian painter and costume designer Leon Bakst has a special place in the history of Fashion Illustration and Stage design. He is mostly known for the illustrations that accompanied his costume designs for The Ballet Russes (Russian Ballet company 1909 – 1929). I was lucky enough to see an exhibition of the Ballet Russes set, costume and poster designs at The Art Gallery of Western Australia way back in 1998 – it was my first year in Perth and the inspirational designs of Bakst spurred me on to chase a career in textiles….

Print in Fashion NOW – Folkloric/fantasy

12 Mar 2010

You have been under a rock if you haven’t noticed the folkloric trends in print over the last couple of years…Images from Fables- elk horns and owls and silhouetted whimsical fairytale creatures have been a massive trend….perhaps at the upper level of this craze – a good example would be Fashion Label Basso & Brooke’s designs which are exclusively digital and finely detailed – often depicting fairytales. The label is an international success and a favourite amongst the new digital textile designers.

Print in Design NOW – Floral

11 Mar 2010

Who doesn’t have a floral motif in their wardrobe? Even the most hard core minimalists have probably got one lurking there somewhere…from tiny repeats, to large oversized splashes, to eastern influence, retro, vintage and everything in between. Florals are also now tied to the conservation/green movement and they tend soothe and uplift us – just like nature – so this trend is not going anywhere for a long time! Ashe designs are predominantly floral – with a graphic eastern twist of course!floral print

Print in Fashion NOW – Abstract / Graphic

09 Mar 2010

Eley Kishimoto is possibly my favourite of the abstract textile designers. Even better – they have an international fashion label to show it off! The label uses a lot of all-over pattern – head to toe – and they are certainly not afraid of colour or crazed abstraction. Abstract and graphic prints are sometimes a bit harder on the eye – especially with the latest craze of kaleidoscopic prints and oversized geometric shapes…Not for the faint hearted – but its still a valid trend right now!Eley

Print in Fashion NOW

05 Mar 2010

print now
I’m so pleased to see that print continues to be a strong force in contemporary fashion trends….and most forecasters say it is here to stay for a while yet! With new technology driving designers to even more magnificent heights of design and with retro style designs consistently rotating back into fashion – the scope for interpretations of textile design do not seem spent. Big themes for print in fashion right now are Abstract/graphic, folkloric/fantasy, vintage/retro and of course the perennial influence of Nature…
