Fabrics Trends in 2017
Metallic textures, shiny silvery and golden tones are on top of high fashion. Runways flash with total metallic looks. Floor-length dresses are made of fabrics with a lamé effect. Floral print is a spring-summer must-have, and here is where the Swiss silks offer a vast variety of alternatives – from pastel pinks to the trending 3D print.
Animal prints are still all the rage, but this time designers opt for an off-beat silk devore variation. Satin silk is another current trend of choice. Its smart sleekness is here to replace velvet — with good reason.
