So long to perfectly coordinated outfits. Designers went all out with mismatched prints at the Resort/Cruise 2013 shows. Every combination of stripes, graphics, polka dots, plaid and animal prints could be seen paired flawlessly coming down the runway.
Designers at the Resort/Cruise 2013 shows had a lighter more whimsical take on prints. While previous runways maintained a stronger more graphic aesthetic, the Resort lines emphasized watercolor florals, blurred abstract prints, and wavy stripes.
Prints: My favorite area of prints to cover each season is the stipe & the dot. It is every designer's task at one point or another to reinvent this surface textile design and make it new & fresh...once again.
The design of the dress should follow the proportion of the body. The shorter the person, the shorter the dress and vice versa. Heels can be worn to alter the height to the proportion. No matter how intricate the design, it must follow the shape of the body
