We have been talking about global influences in fashion and in home decor for the past decade but this season global is more than an influence, it’s a lifestyle that is melding the borders of countries.
No longer are we singling out a certain cultures style or influence, we are celebrating all cultures as a lifestyle.
In prints we are combining color palettes that are unexpected and celebrating the craftsmanship of many countries by embellishing with embroidered and appliquéd accents.
In fashion we are seeing a melange of fabrics working together on one garment with updated global color palettes.
In home decor, texture is important either printed or embellished with 3-D fabrics.
It’s time we celebrate these global greats as a new way of mixing craft, style and art both in fashion and in the home.
