Spring is here and many trends have been spotted in recent fashion shows. As the cold weather is ending, and flowers blossoming, many trends represent the beauty of spring.
In Shanghai, designers manipulate fabric to create texture, volume and completely transform them. Similarly, texture is shown in fabrics in Tokyo, where 3D fabric flowers are placed on garments. There are a variety of flower placements, such as oversized repeats, decorative application, varied scales and scattered. This trend has also been seen on the runways shows on Rebecca Taylor and Michael Kors. Florals have also been detected in embroideries on sheer fabrics to resemble delightful gardens.
Another trend that has been spotted in many runway shows is nude colors, which have been inspired by the light hues of makeup palettes. These colors are soft and sophisticated and are perfect for spring for sheer and silky satin clothing. Some designers to use cosmetic nudes are Sharon Wauchob, Haider Ackermann and Vionnet. Sheer fabric is also used by itself in many runway shows as well as with embellishments to create movement on a barely there fluid surface. The sheer fabric trend uses light silks and layering with chiffon to help achieve a feminine look. Sheer fabrics are also combined with knit fabrics, such as ultra fine silk, mohair and viscose blends to create a pattern suitable for the spring weather.
Floral designs, either done in fabric manipulation or actual application of 3D flowers are used frequently to resemble spring’s blooming flowers. Fabrics for spring 2015 are also breathable materials. Even knits that are used are thin and combined with sheer pieces. These trends for spring 2015 are light and feminine; perfect for the spring weather.

Shoes solve every thing! Really….every thing! You’re wardrobe from last year can be update by infusing Tangerine Tango as your “neutral” color for shoes.
