Trends: FABRIC

As we move away from our old website…today we tackle the TREND page

Item #1: Fabric

I love fabric

Antique Boucle

All kinds. Old, new, contemporary, traditional, ridiculously expensive, common….love it all.

In my aesthetic, fabrics are like people….the differences in them make them work together

Each Season, each Market, each Project…Manufacturers & Designers alike ponder which fabrics will hit as on trend and how they can be marketed & sold

——————————————————————————–

How do I determine what is ‘On Trend’ and why does it matter?

Impossible question really. I boil it down to three broad observations to make it somewhat manageable:

1. What is On Trend Fabric & Why does it matter depends on the Client

2. What is On Trend Fabric & Why does it matter depends on the Industry

3. What is On Trend Fabric & Why does it matter depends on the Economy

Tomorrow we answer these questions….think about it, why do these things matter? What is your response?
