With Spring and Summer blending together in perfect lazy afternoons, watching the boats go by or the frogs jump from lily pad to lily pad, it’s almost necessary that watercolor dresses are trending.
YSL’s 2008 paint splatter dress will forever be my go-to-gal and frontrunner in high fashion’s painted fabric, but there are some amazing things happening on the border of art and fashion right now.
2012 has a less modern, more classical Impressionist take on the watercolor color look and I, for one, am hopelessly in love with it.
Some inspiration behind the fabrics:
Also trending now: Tahitian florals, batik, tribal art…anything you absolutely love or hate? I have to admit, not a huge fan of the tribal fabrics…
And I’ll tell you the secret reason I am thanking my lucky stars watercolor is in right now…if you follow my twitter, you may or may not know that I learned the hard way you never even handwash vintage black velvet with pretty much anything, but especially not gorgeous vintage gowns (yes, including the coral one, sigh). So, I’ve got dye, I’ve got ruined vintage dresses, and I’ve got inspiration and imagination. Send me happy wishes and look out for the results.
Has a current trend ever saved you from a diy disaster?
