SS 2017 Vision Board

This month, our vision board is dedicated to pastel blush shades and the leading Pantone color for 2017 which is Pale Dogwood (Pantone 13 14 04), this allowed for illusive ethereal silhouettes. 

The feminine can be beautifully predominate with the use of sheer and gentle silk .  We would recommend a sheer silk cotton voile, or a silk chiffon as it drapes and delicately flows with a loose and comfortable design. 

This semi-sheer silk georgette made of highly twisted yarns, has a slightly grainy texture and a dull finish. Take advantage of its billowing drape and create flowing dresses, blouses and skirts.

Another fabulous suggestion is Silk Organza 8mm which has the structure to hold its shape as well as being sheer, refer to Bora Aksu that has layered tones of pink, with interesting textile layering and colour. Lace inserts adds the texture and dimension as can be seen in Bora Aksu collection of SS 2017
