Bold, embellished and embroidered.


Welcome back to my creative Wednesday posts! This week I thought I’d do an inspiration post looking at a top summer trend for 2016!

For those who are wondering why I talk so much about fashion when my main avenue is Illustration/ design… It’s where I find the majority of my inspiration. I have always enjoyed sitting down looking through fashion magazines and have been filled with so much inspiration and ideas that it is something that I still do very frequently (I’d recommend subscribing to your fav mag if you buy regularly…you’ll save so much dosh in the long run!)

This season, embellishment is BIG! I’m talking bold prints covered in beautifully detailed embroidery, lots of texture, patterns, 3D embellishments and FLORAL!!! I feel like this particular trend has come at the right time for myself, what with getting married this summer.

It is such a playful and feminine trend which can be modernised with fresh ideas as well as very nostalgic, taking prints from the 1960’s and 70’s and mixing them with modern fabrics and colours.

I’ve seen so much of this trend about from high end fashion labels through to the high street from home ware to fashion, bridal to basics so there is definitely something for everyone!

I’ve collated a few of my favourites over the past few months! Here they are: Links included!
