It seems as though fashion designers are looking towards traditional textiles as inspiration for their Fall collections. The NY Times has a great little article on the fabrics of fashion week. Here are a few of my favorites...Preen's collection was full of incredible pattern! I especially love this sweater, taking a cue from traditional Amish quilts.
The crocheted skirt at Proenza Schouler was one of my favorite uses of a traditional technique.
And then, the much talked about Maasai (nomadic tribe of Kenya and Tanzania) prints at Thakoon. Stunning!
