Trend Alert!!! Foliage prints for this Spring!

Every year, there is a considerable amount of florals, plants and nature-inspired fashion in the runways… it’s like a never ending trend and designers always find a way to include this in a fresh and new way from the previous seasons…

This spring, most of the foliage prints were quite graphical and monochromatic… Here is a fine example from Osklen!

Love, love, love that monochrome print! (on the left) A beautiful well balanced all-over print that looks like a painting of a forest through a greyscale filter… with that, the next look comes without the greyscale filter on both white and black backgrounds… (on the middle and the right) I’m dying to try and paint this on a fabric… wish me luck! 😉

Osklen was all about a Brazilian botanical garden…

Another black & white graphical foliage print from Paule Ka… beautiful styling 🙂

Another graphical yet simple and feminine look from Oscar de La Renta… Love the silhouette of the dress too!

There was quite a graphical and patchwork-y take in Clover Canyon’s collection… Their entire collection was young, sporty and vibrant… How cute are those foliage printed sneakers???

We cannot simply forget Marni:

How about John Galliano… I’ve never been a big fan of Galliano, but some looks from this year’s spring collection simply took my breath away… His approach to foliage was beautiful… the colours were absolutely fresh… I love some of these 3D foliagesjohn-galliano-1017x1024

Moving on to florals….

Here’s a new take on florals by Alexander McQueen

The placement of the minimalistic and oversized flowers is what I love about this look! It’s so simple yet so chic!
(Planning to replicate this print into a fine ivory silk with matte black fabric paint, hand-drawn) 😉

Talk about oversized floral prints… Carolina Herrera was a garden full of extra large spring blooms…

There was an ethereal version of watercolour floral prints at Naeem Khan… Can florals be any prettier?

Ok… there’re many other brands that carried this trend for this season but above are the ones that made to my favourites list… Inspired by a few of them, I came up with this very simple look for my Spring collection this year…(I didn’t do the print though) Can you guess whom it’s inspired by? 😉
