Fashion Fabrics

Fashion fabric is a type of fabric intended for creating the clothing that meets the latest fashion trends. Typically, it is about special occasion outfits, but it may also comprise the elements of your casual or working wardrobe. These fabrics are often produced by the leading manufacturers in the industry, whose expertise in fabric design counts many decades.

Not limited to one particular type of fibre, weave, pattern or finishing detail, fashion fabrics come in a wide range of designs depending on the style trends of the current fashion season. These days, fashionistas can go either for timeless options, such as embroidered tulle, delicate lace, tweed boucle and velvet fabrics, or seasonal dressmaking fabrics like ombre silk organza, sequined, fur, feather or lame fabrics.

It is important to draw a line between fashion fabrics and couture fabrics at this point, as in the first case we mean textiles meeting the current fashion trends, while the second term stands for the fabrics that have more commonalities with art rather than with fashion in its utilitarian sense.

There’s absolutely no chance to generalise them with any unifying concept except the freedom of self expression, as during the current autumn/winter season you will be equally en vogue dressed in the 1980s style, cosplaying Trinity from the Matrix, blazing in silvery futuristic coat, head-to-toe leopard print outfit, or western movies-inspired poncho. And these all are only the tip of an iceberg. How to embrace the entire scope of a/w 2018/2019 trends? The table 2 below is intended to help you.
