Fashion Friday – colour palette London fall 2017

Last week I showed New York colour palette. This week let’s look at London. They are quite similar, but I think London is a little more vibrant. Both are great and they will work well together. Colour, after all, is a personal thing so feel free to play with it, mix and match and be…

Fashion Friday – colour palette New York fall 2017

Summer is coming to its end and it’s time to think about fall and winter projects. Yarn stores can be a sensory overload with all the textures and colours. Most people tend to be drawn to specific colours and end up with a monotone wardrobe. Let’s not perpetuate this impulse. Here is a collection of…

Fashion Friday – Jill Stuart resort 2018

This collection is what romance looks like. I’m in love with the flower patterns, the ruffles, the French stripes, the lace, the lot. It’s Stuart’s 25th year in the business and I’m really feeling those 90s vibes. The pieces are easily dressed up or down, making them perfect day-to-evening wear. I can see myself enjoying…

Fashion Friday – M Missoni resort 2018

Adulting is hard. Sometimes one just wants to live in a fairytale, forgetting that fairytales have struggles of their own, which usually come with powerful messages. This collection may seem childish at first glance. But within the quirky knitted patterns are words women can relate to in these troubled times. You just have to look…

Fashion Friday – Orla Kiely resort 2018

This is a collection after my heart. Flowers and ruffles and 60s peasant dresses are everything I love. The only criticism I have is the colour selection. Though it is true to the time period, I’m just not a fan. I do, however, take inspiration from the lovely embroidery and will definitely implement it into…

Fashion Friday – Sally LaPointe resort 2018

Sally LaPointe has not been around for long but has already established a very strong esthetic of clean modern lines and neutral colours. I love the metallic details. It would be quite easy to implement into your next garment project wether with knitting, crocheting or embroidering. I’d also have to add that the knit lace…

Fashion Friday – Self-Portrait pre-fall 2017

Wedding season is well upon us. This Self-Portrait collection is perfect to get inspiration from. It’s lacy and breezy but not overly sweet. I think it has just the right amount of edge for a romantic occasion such as a wedding. What really draws me to it is how crochetable it is and if you…

Fashion Friday – Christian Dior resort 2018

Sometimes a collection comes along which inspires me in all of my fibre art obsessions. It has it all! There are heavy woven fabrics and knits. There are painted and embroidered dresses. There’s even quilting and macrome. The theme of this collection is civilizations of yesteryear. It’s a trip from ancient South America to Africa…
