Once seen as a symbol of the counterculture expressed in tie-dyed fabrics of the 1960s, psychedelic prints have seen a resurgence in popularity.
Scotland’s clans, who originally used these types of patterned fabrics as blankets, came to sling them over their shoulders. Eighteenth-century Scottish immigrants contributed to the popularity of plaids in the U.S. Today, tartan remains one of the most popular textiles in America.
Once a symbol of power, animal prints have long been a fashion trend. With the ever-growing awareness of animal cruelty, activists and organizations have promoted wearing clothing made of animal prints rather than actual pelts.
Les Petit Fleurs
Floral patterns are a timeless trend, always in fashion. Designers will continue to be inspired by these beautiful examples of nature as long as flowers continue to bloom in all their radiant beauty.
