Nature and Nurture, Megatrend 2012-2013
Fall 2012 to Spring 2013 will return to the basics by utilizing organic materials in a sustainable way. Reflecting on our carbon footprint is a true inspiration for current designers. From ready to wear to interior design, organic chic is refined with soft, luxurious pieces. Natural resins will adorn hardware and woven materials will be crafted with a modern twist. We will see this megatrend celebrated by using rustic leathers, hand crafted yarns, and un-dyed imperfections. One of my personal favorites (as a girl from New England) is the addition of fish skins as an exotic alternative to luxury skins.
