Milan Fashion Week – Design Sofisticato

Prints were front and center in Milan during the Italian Fashion Week! Juxtaposed to London’s exploration of brights, in Milan we saw muted tones that gave an overall darker sensibility.  We also noted photographs & artwork translated directly onto fabrics, and new twists on classic animal prints.

Click the image below to explore all of Milan Fashion week, and get started making a new collection on EzTextiles.com! We’ve got animal prints, geometrics, and florals to give you a jump-start, all of which are fully editable so you can easily download your designs and  recolor them with your unique color palette!

The Fashion World may have moved on to London but we have to highlight the colors we saw coming down the runway this past New York Fashion week! It was great to see the radiant palette, with an abundance of fiery oranges and a broad spectrum of blues!

After getting a glimpse, we had to check out EzTextiles and use the “Lock Color” function to see what we could find using the below image as inspiration! Click here to check out how you can easily find these Fall colors in our Library today!

Trending – Fair Isle

In the midst of this Winter season,there has been a noticeable presence in bulky sweaters,cable knits,oversized cardigans, and cozy furs. The strongest must have trend is coming from Fair Isle patterns!

Once thought of as “on the verge of tacky” holiday themed patterns, a.k.a. Fair Isles, have made quite a comeback in nearly every market, and on everything from accessories and apparel to home items. Runway designers have helped  popularize Fair Isles this Fall 2010 season in their Womens and  Menswear lines and we are loving it!

The traditional knitting technique originated in a tiny isle off northern Scotland and has remained unscathed throughout decades!
